The Bowers Medal of Arts was established to recognize and celebrate the vital role that Henry Bowers played in the development of and support for the visual and performing arts at NC State University.
During his tenure as director of the University Student Center, Mr. Bowers committed himself to the goal of making the arts an inseparable part of the educational experience for all NC State students. He worked ceaselessly to create opportunities for students to have access to a full range of the arts, whether as engaged and enlightened audiences or creative and innovative participants.
As an active participant in arts organizations in the state and region, Mr. Bowers has been an untiring advocate for all the arts, seeking to create a climate of cultural excellence that would be supportive of the arts and artists at all levels of endeavor.
His uncompromising personal vision and his commitment to artistic excellence has contributed immeasurably to the creation and propagation of the superior arts programs now established at NC State University that not only benefit students, staff, faculty and the larger community served by this land grant institution, but also have been recognized nationally as models for other institutions.
