PBSC Humanities Arts Fest to feature fine arts, theatre and more

The public is welcome to this free, family-friendly event in the Humanities Building on the Lake Worth campus. See schedule below.

Palm Beach State College invites the public to relax and enjoy a Friday evening of music, drama, film, art and interactive activities at its third annual Humanities Arts Festival March 15, from 5 to 8 p.m., in the Humanities Building (HU) on the College’s Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave.

Free and family-friendly, the Humanities Arts Fest will feature live jazz and classical guitar, theatre scenes, art projects and demos, short films and more—all showcasing the talent of PBSC students and faculty, who will be on hand to share information about their work and the College’s programs in music, film, theatre, graphic and interior design, and the fine arts. (See schedule below.)

Attendees will also have multiple chances to win raffle prizes donated by community businesses, and food trucks will be on hand to purchase meals or snacks.

“There is no better way to get information than to have an event where you can see for yourself what it is that we offer,” said Interior Design Professor Nancy Albert who is co-chairing the event with Theatre Professor David Hyland.

“There are several interactive aspects to this festival that will truly make this an enjoyable experience for all visitors,” Albert said.

The Theatre Department will be performing a scene from one of its one-act plays called “A Brush with Shakespeare,” by Rae Randall and John Carlile.

“It is a fun way to tell the stories of a few of Shakespeare’s plays with a modern twist,” said Hyland.

The department will also be sharing a small portion of its spring main stage production, which will be shown in its entirety from April 18 – 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Stage West. Fliers for the show will be available at the festival.

Attendees may also view work by fine art and graphic design faculty in an exhibit in the gallery on the first floor. Paintings, drawings, mixed media works on paper, commissioned logos, packaging design, photography, and more will be on display. Plus, public art projects will give attendees opportunities to explore their creative side.

Music choices will range from jazz and classical guitar to solo performances and the PBSC Panther Pride Drum Line. Interior design displays and student short film screenings add more options.

The festival was organized through a committee of the following Humanities faculty: Hyland, David Gibble, David Durbak, Victoria Martin, Kristin Miller, Zenaida Espinosa, Albert, Allen Webber, Michael Seminerio and Thomas Cznarty.
