The College of the Arts at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is presenting the 2nd Annual Festival of the Arts, powered by SPARK, the annual fund campaign.
The Festival will be held April 1 - 5, 2008, and will include a fashion show, lectures, art shows, concerts, performances, and much more. Some of the events will be ticketed but many are free.
The Festival will culminate on Saturday evening with the Festival Gala, honoring Elemore Morgan, in the Iberia Bank building in downtown Lafayette. This cocktail-attire event will feature food from local restaurants, live entertainment, and live and silent auctions.
A Festival Pass is available for $50, which allows access to all ticketed events, except the Festival Gala which is a separate ticketed event for $50 a person. A Patron's Pass is available for $75, which includes entrance into all Festival events.
All proceeds from the events will benefit SPARK, the College's Annual Campaign, which will provide funds for the enhancement of a variety of programs in the College of the Arts.
