Family-friendly digital and fine arts festival

Every Spring Mason opens its state-of-the-art Art and Design Building to alumni, parents, and the public for a family-friendly celebration to benefit the visual arts at Mason. Guests tour more than 15 studio spaces and interact with student and faculty artists, plus have the opportunity to create their own works of art.

Previous years have included creative mac-and-cheese cuisine and beverage stations (beer, wine, and non-alcoholic) located throughout the event, plus a silent auction of arts-related items and experiences.
