Music, film, theatre and more showcased at Humanities Arts Fest
More than 400 people tuned in on their creativity at PBSC’s Humanities Arts Fest 2023 on Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Lake Worth campus.
Attendees at the free event took playwriting classes, created art, watched short films, designed a room, listened to live music and much more. The event was organized to highlight the work of students and faculty in PBSC’s music, fine arts, theater, film, graphic design and interior design departments.
Organizers of the event were: David Gibble (music); Kristin Miller (graphic design and fine arts); Zenaida Espinosa and Nancy Albert (interior design); Dave Hyland (theatre); and Michael Seminerio (film, digital animation and recording arts).
Many more faculty, students and administrators also helped plan and volunteer to make it a success.
“It was a spectacular event representing the creative energy of the college,” said Richard White, interim associate dean of Arts and Humanities. “The organizers were the department chairs conceptualizing the ideas, with a lot of hard work from everyone involved. It does take a village for an event like this come to fruition.”

Rather than be discarded, instruments were given to students, who in turn created unique assemblage sculptures, which were on display at the festival.
