Hosted by the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern, this free festival allows the community to become artists at various ArtStops while enjoying performances, food and the local Artist Market.
This year, ArtsFest invites patrons to watch headline performers Balefire bring fire dancing from Atlanta. Pladd Dot Music’s School of Rock and Georgia Southern’s Mischief Makers will also perform on the stage.
Festival goers create their own artwork at 30 different ArtStops. Several new ArtStops will be presented alongside community favorites.
ArtsFest is a nonprofit event made possible by community and student volunteers. ArtsFest’14 is supported in part by Georgia Southern University’s Campus Life Enrichment Committee, Averitt Center for the Arts, Campus Evolution Villages, Pizza Hut and Wal-Mart.
The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art is housed in the the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. CLASS, the University’s College of the Creative Mind, prepares students to achieve academic excellence, develop their analytical skills, enhance their creativity, and embrace their responsibilities as citizens of their communities, their nations, and the world.
