The Averitt Center for the Arts is celebrating its 10th season of bringing the arts to the people of Statesboro and the surrounding area and bringing the people of Statesboro and the surrounding area into the arts.In terms of performances, the Averitt Center started ambitiously. The inaugural 2004-05 season brought a grand-opening night of music headlined by Broadway singer and actress Christine Andreas in the center’s Emma Kelly Theater, a main gallery exhibition by Savannah visual artist Lori Robinson, and a local production of the musical “Radio Days” staged while Statesboro and Georgia Southern University were hosting the Governor’s Conference on Tourism.“We really started with a bang,” recalls Tim Chapman, the Averitt Center’s executive director.For the 10th anniversary, the Statesboro Arts Council asked the staff to plan events that reflect what the Averitt Center has done during the past decade. The resulting “10 Days Marking 10 Years” will begin with the 2013 Legend in the Arts ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and extend through Sept.21.
