ArtsFest 2015

Our last Arts Festival was a massive success.  Between April 23 and 25 Boston College was bursting with the very best it had to offer in dance, music, visual art, literary art, and theatre.  With over 1,000 student and faculty artists participating there was no shortage of beautiful, inspiring, and daring works for the public to see.  From the professional beauty of the art work displayed in the Stokes Art Tent to the vibrant enthusiasm of Dancing with bOp!, there was never a dull moment during the entirety of the Festival.  See our Arts Festival Highlights page for a more detailed look at the BC Arts Festival of 2015.
