ArtsFest 2013: Art & the Quest
ArtsFest is a weeklong gathering of writers, artists, thinkers and performers. This 12th annual celebration showcases the creative and performing arts and talents of members of the DePauw and Greencastle communities and visiting artists.
ArtsFest is Sunday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Nov. 10.
The theme for ArtsFest 2013 is Art & the Quest. Quests may entail a spiritual journey, a path to transformation or a challenge persevered. Of course, some quests expose darker desires: a plot for revenge, mutation, destruction or power. Art & the Quest seeks to explore the many ways that a quest may capture or manifest in artistic expression of music, theater, art, film, speech, dance and more.
