boston college arts council


The first festival in 1999 was one day - with less than 30 events and exhibits. The sixth festival in 2004 featured 34 performances, eight art exhibitions, nine art demonstrations, five film exhibitions, six hours of literary readings, an afternoon of art activities designed for children, a Mass for the arts, and several other special events.


The festival program also included an exclusive alumni event on the closing evening of the festival, during which the Arts Council presented an annual Alumni Award for artistic achievement. In this year the award was presented to singer/songwriter Ellis Paul (Paul Plissey '87).
