About the Event

WORLD ART DAY
A celebration of art and creative expression

Join us any time from 1:30 pm until night as we celebrate World Art Day with help from student groups, academic departments, and community organizations of all kinds. We're filling Northrop with art, music, food, and more! The best part? It's all FREE FOR STUDENTS!

World Art Day will feature student art, workshops, breakdancing, robots, light show, open mic, crafts, interactive art projects, contests and prizes, and a special free concert by Black Violin. (Two free tickets per valid student ID.)

Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil B. and Kev Marcus who combine their classical training and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” The band released their major label debut Stereotypes (featuring Black Thought of The Roots and MC Pharoahe Monch) on Universal Music which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kanye West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and has creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys.
