The Art Exhibit will display an array of exceptional paintings, drawings, prints and photographs from around the world. The Symposium will feature panel discussions with graphic artists, authors and selective music talent. Loud bands are being scheduled to perform on select dates. Warning: Bring your own ear plugs!
