Highlights: Night of the Arts
November 18, 2015
Night of the Arts is just a day away, when nearly 100 student artists will converge for an evening of performances and activities celebrating the wide-reaching Drexel arts community. Organized by the Entertainment & Arts Society, the festival takes place on Friday, November 20 from 5:00pm to 10:00pm in the URBN Center Annex (3401 Filbert St.), and features live music, theatre and dance, along with visual art and an auction of Philly cultural experiences. Read on for some highlights of the celebration, which you’re invited to join!
The a capella group 8 to the Bar will kick off the night, followed by performances in the URBN Annex Black Box Theater by the Drexel Football Team, an improv comedy troupe; the Drexel Players, our co-op theatre company; the Bollywood dance troupe Drexel Fanaa; and The Last Frontier and RFA, both Music Industry student bands.
The URBN Annex Screening room will feature films by students Tristan Santana, Anna Pruett, Dan Mosley, Laurel Gabel and Connie Chung. The work of visual artists Stephen Bell (Entertainment & Arts Management), Josey Driscoll (Graphic Design), Prairie Yang (Chemistry, College of Arts & Sciences), Marissa Fu (Biological Sciences, College of Arts & Sciences), and Allison Liu (Psychology, College of Arts & Sciences), will be on display in the URBN Annex lobby.
Experiences available through the auction include tickets to shows at the Annenberg Center, Wilma Theatre, Fringe Arts and Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as to BalletX’s Winter Series and a membership to the Philadelphia Film Society.
