This year’s Arts Festival theme is “The Color of Fear.” We will evaluate and analyze the symbolism of color in film, music, art and literature and how they respond to each other. Does a color represent an emotion or envoke an emotion? Check out the list of events scheduled around this theme on the Cochran and Macon campuses.

Alexis Brown, an #MGA junior pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary Musicianship, recently won the Percussive Arts Society International Conference (PASIC) solo timpani competition in Indianapolis. Here she is with Dr. John Beck, professor emeritus from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y, who composed her competition solo. PASIC is the largest and most prestigious percussion conference in the world, so this is a tremendous accomplishment for Brown and her MGA instructor, Miguel Castro.
KnighTVision is the student video production office at Middle Georgia State University. Student volunteers work on a news broadcast, short films and radio ads, for example, in order to polish their skills with these different media platforms. It includes coverage of campus events and interviews with students, faculty and staff. Informational videos are created to help new and prospective students get an idea of what campus life is like. The goal is to bring a video representation to MGA through the perspective of the people who make up our university community.
