Celebrate Fall’s Colors at Ovations

With each passing day, there’s a little more bite in the breeze and leaves are changing on every corner. Pumpkins are lined along entryways and windowsills, rain has begun to tap-tap its way back into our lives, and the curtain goes up on Ovations in less than a week. There’s no doubt it’s officially autumn.

But as we prepare to celebrate the season and the UW’s array of talented artists and performers next Sunday from 2-4 p.m. at Meany Hall (reserve your tickets now before it’s too late!), we want you to share your favorite aspects of autumn.

Whether you’re carving pumpkins, sewing a handmade costume, or stopping for a minute to savor some hot apple cider, share how you’re squeezing the most from the season by tagging your photos #UWovations on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook or by emailing them to us at wholeu@uw.edu. Those who do will win some sweet seasonal swag!

Feeling creative? We’ve printed an original 12-page Husky-themed coloring book that we’ll distribute to all children in attendance after the second act of Ovations this Sunday. Help your kids get in the spirit of the show (or get in the spirit yourself) by downloading, printing, and coloring one of the pictured sneak-peek pages! Share it with us on social with the tag #UWovations or email it to us at wholeu@uw.edu and we’ll feature it in our social feed!
