arts festival 2019 logo

This year's Arts Festival theme is "The Color of Fear." We will evaluate and analyze the symbolism of color in film, music, art and literature and how they respond to each other. Does a color represent an emotion or evoke an emotion? Check out the list of events scheduled around this theme on the Cochran and Macon campuses.

Featured author, Andy Davidson, will hold a Q & A, followed by a discussion panel on monster literature.  More April events will include a film series, K-POP Talk and a Raku Firing on the Macon and Cochran campuses.
