ďThis was one of the best events Iíve attended... The diverse range of arts juxtaposed with one another resulted in a wonderful experience that stimulated all of oneís senses and made the arts accessible to an audience of students with different backgrounds. Even when the arts were in the background, they helped spark eye-opening conversations with local artists and students from multiple graduate schools- all of them bringing their unique perspectives and experiences with them. I admire the organizers efforts in not only showcasing the extra-curricular talents of Penn students, but also engaging with the Philadelphia community and supporting local artists."
ARCís mission is to bring exposure to and engagement of young listeners of the collaborative arts by providing unique and intimate performances in non-traditional venues. ARC emphasizes collaboration between artists of various mediums, understanding that it is the immersive quality and artist-to-artist support that provides a truly powerful experience.
