2016 ARTS EDUCATION FESTIVAL A RESOUNDING SUCCESS
Thanks to the diligent work of SIU Graduate Assistants, Addison de Lisle and Danny Rohr, Museum Studies students, from Jo Nast and Dona Bachman’s classes, Museum Staff and many talented artists from across the campus and Southern Illinois, 1,500 students from the region experienced an outstanding immersion into the arts. From blacksmithing to glass blowing, from chamber music to the Southern Illinois Children’s Choir, from Tony Intravalia’s dancers to Ron Naversen’s Mask Making – all seemed to have a good time.
Special thanks to those who helped fun this year’s event: Carolyn A. Snyder, Dr. Susan Ford & the SIU Provost’s Office, Dr. Meera Komarraju & the College of Liberal Arts, Mr. George Sheffer & Murdale True Value, Teresa Guy & Walmart, and the Southern Illinois Credit Union.
Here are some photos of the April 13 & 14 event:
