There is no such thing as a quiet year at Meadows School of the Arts.

As we continue on to the next academic year and reflect on the inspiring events of 2014-15—including the launch of a new initiative, Fashion Week, bringing new stage productions to life, innovations in arts data, Meadows at the Meyerson and much, much more—we present a look at photos we love from the year at SMU Meadows School of the Arts. The indefatigable photographer Kim Leeson was on hand for many Meadows events. Here are just some of our favorites:
