Join us for an outdoor celebration of the arts!
Want to be a part of something BIG? The 2019 Fall Arts Festival, entitled "Walt Whitman: Birth, Childhood and Home,” will be an outdoor celebration of the arts devoted to the American poet, essayist and journalist’s life and work.
This massive event will feature students and alumni from all arts disciplines, including the visual arts, music, theater, dance, communications, film and creative writing departments!
Join us October 2nd (rain date: October 16th) for a variety of events and activities around campus:
- outdoor art created with alumna Brittany Baldwin '13
- gigantic interactive piñatas created by the art department’s sculpture class
- on-the-spot filming of student actors reading creative writing students’ work
- outdoor film screening
- music performances
- dance performances choreographed with alumni from the dance department
- typewriters on location in various spaces for impromptu poetry and story writing
- live, immersive theatrical performance “installations” in different spaces around campus
Your generous donations will help each department acquire the materials needed to make this day a great success, such as:
- canvases, banners and paints for our art students
- chalk supplies, which our Adelphi community participants can use to create beautiful sidewalk drawings
- equipment rentals (or potential purchases), such as a video projector to showcase our talented students’ films
Celebrate the arts with your gift today. And save the date to participate in the Fall Arts Festival on October 2, 2019.
Thank you for your generosity!
