The end of the year is slowly creeping upon us as we prepare for another summer working our summer jobs, vacationing, sitting on a beach, nights by the bonfire and cruising down the road with no worries of ice or snow to ruin it. But there is still plenty of semester left.

It’s time for us to finish those last-minute projects and study for those stressful finals we always look forward to…not. What better way to take the weight off in those last weeks than to celebrate the arts of Southwest Minnesota State University?

It’s that time of year again; the time to celebrate and enjoy the numerous events that the 7th Annual Fine Arts Celebration has to offer. This year, the Fine Arts events will be held April 11-May 11, with a full schedule listed below.

The majority of events are free and all are open to the public.

 

All events are sponsored by the Fine Arts and Communication Department, the Creative Writing Program and the English Department.
