The Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) is filled with artistically inclined students, faculty, and staff.
In celebration of our talented community, the CVMBS Committee for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accountability (C-IDEA) is inviting all to showcase their art for our first Coffee, Culture, & Conversation in the Courtyard on Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 5:30 p.m.
Art forms may include:
Have you created something you would like to share but don’t feel comfortable sharing it yourself? Or are you someone who is interested in performing something created by someone else? Artists and proxies can sign up at the link below, and C-IDEA will help match artists and performers! All others are encouraged to save the date as we come together in the new year in support of our creative peers and colleagues!

Jan. 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day to remember the victims of the Holocaust and the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in 1945. The day remembers the killing of 6 million Jews and 11 million others by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. It was designated by United Nations General Assembly resolution on Nov. 1 2005. The resolution came after a special session was held earlier that year on 24 January to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust.
