A Unique Celebration of the Arts at American University
On October 5, 2013, the second annual Fall for the Arts celebration will take place in the Katzen Arts Center at American University. Designed as a series of hands-on classes to explore the art making process and breadth of artistic programs at AU. Fall for the Arts will bring neighbors, students, faculty, and friends together through art. The day will feature an afternoon of dynamic classes including orchestral conducting, the history of audio recording, a playwriting class, and a discussion of the role of interruption as a catalyst for art, to name just a few.
The day will conclude with an evening cocktail reception in the Katzen Arts Center and a live auction featuring local artists. The event is open to the public.
Registration will begin at 3pm. For more information visit the website at fallforthearts.american.edu.
The Arts at American University
Washington D.C. is one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the world, and the arts at American University have something for everyone - whether its the creative talents of students and faculty or ground-breaking exhibits and performances by local and international artists. We fill a niche in the D.C. area in our celebration of superb student talent, local artists, and thought-provoking political exhibitions.
Why support the arts?
University-based arts programs fill an important niche in our community. They are the training ground for the next generation of artists and cultural leaders, they inspire interdisciplinary and innovative thinking through instructional and thought-provoking exhibits, and they play a significant role in nurturing the arts within the greater community. The AU Museum is able to host smaller, more focused exhibits that explore contemporary issues and their cultural context, in settings far more instructional and experimental than one would find in public institutions. The museum also fills a significant void in the D.C. art scene, by regularly promoting local artists.
