Southwestern University: Arts Festival sponsored by Delta Omicron
By Natalie Moore and Mary Kierst
The Southwestern University Arts Festival brings the three diverse Fine Arts Departments together to entertain and educate the campus and Georgetown community. Southwestern’s professional music fraternity, Delta Omicron, is working in tandem with Mask and Wig, the Art Association, and many other talented individuals to plan this event. Working with these diverse groups and organizations, we have blurred the boundaries between the arts and learned about one another’s passions. The Festival will host an instrument petting zoo, small ensemble performances, photography workshop, art exhibition, an improv troupe, face painting, and free-expression banner painting. Delta Omicron will be sponsoring a raffle in support of the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which provides instruments to underserved schools nationwide. The Festival will also be hosting a Fine Arts Scholar Lecture in which one upperclass and underclass student from each department will give a short presentation on their research in the arts. This event will recognize the challenge that fine arts students face when researching the arts: interpretation.
The main goal of the Festival is to share the arts with our peers and the Georgetown community and to spotlight the many talents of Southwestern’s students.
