Celebrating the arts for 32 years

Georgia Southern student Gabrielle Wi...


While anyone can be artistic anytime, anywhere, Georgia Southern University's annual ArtsFest provides a very public outlet for spontaneous creation.
    "Stop and Create" signs by every station briefly explain what is going on: 3-D design, dance, tie-dye. There were some new stations this year, too, including one in which all the art was done on an iPad. Anyone who was interested could walk up, grab an iPad configured with several types of apps to simulate painting and drawing, and create a masterpiece in mere minutes —without the mess that paint or chalk can leave behind. For a small fee, they could get a printout of their handiwork.
    While the forecast was ominous, Mother Nature relented and held off the rain until hours after the daylong event was over. By then, thousands of people had long since expressed themselves, some in ways they might not have considered before.
