Fall for the Arts
Fall for the Arts is the annual celebration of the arts at American University. The event, which is open to the public, welcomes local residents and neighbors, the AU community, and other arts lovers in a day of fun and merriment, lectures, and hands-on workshops capped off with a cocktail reception and live auction of works by leading local artists.
Our second annual Fall for the Arts, held on October 5, 2013, was a huge success. More than 160 arts enthusiasts participated in the 20 offered courses and workshops. The dynamic courses ranged from orchestral conducting, the history of audio recording, a playwriting class, and a discussion of the role of interruption as a catalyst for art, just to name a few. The art auction featured 31 examples of amazing artists at the top of their game.
The next Fall for the Arts will take place in fall 2014. The event date will be announced in the summer.
