Music, film, theater and more planned for PBSC Humanities Arts Fest on Feb. 25
Palm Beach State College invites the public to explore their creative side at PBSC’s Humanities Arts Fest 2023 taking place at the Lake Worth campus on Saturday, Feb. 25, from noon to 4 p.m. Attendees can take a playwriting class, create art, watch short films, design a room, listen to live music and much more.
Free and family-friendly, the festival will be held in the Humanities Building (HU), located at the southwest corner of the Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave.
The festival will showcase the work of students and faculty in PBSC’s music, fine arts, theater, film, graphic design and interior design departments. Attendees will discover a beehive of activity, with live performances, art exhibits, film screenings, classes and demonstrations, and be able to try their hand at art and design. Faculty and students will be present throughout the festival to answer questions and facilitate activities.
Food trucks will also be available to purchase lunch or snacks.

One exhibit will feature the Nat King Cole Generation Hope’s Project Encore! Upcycling Project that provided PBSC art students with unusable musical instruments. Rather than be discarded, instruments were given to students, who in turn created unique assemblage sculptures, which will be on display at the festival.
“The professional artists that we have as faculty at PBSC are amazing, and our students are incredibly talented,” said Richard White, associate dean for Arts, Communication, Design and Humanities. “People don’t realize the caliber of our work—that’s why everyone needs to come to the festival and see what we’re doing.”
