Penn State SOMA Arts Crawl 2017
Arts Crawl is a day-long music & arts event in State College, PA designed to showcase a multitude of student and community art.
Hooray for Arts Crawl! Back again for its 10th year!!
On April 15th, 2017, Penn State's North Campus will be transformed into an arts festival. Here, you can witness multiple forms of art including paintings, sculptures, film, and poetry among various other types of visual art and performances. Attendees can meander around Visual Arts, Stuckeman, Palmer, and Patterson buildings as well as outside to view all of the exhibits and performances Arts Crawl 2017 will have to offer. Student arts organizations will showcase their talents in special exhibits while bands, DJ's, and solo performers play beautiful tunes. Both will be easy to locate through the schedule and map provided at the SOMA booth.
SOMA (Students Organizing the Multiple Arts) is responsible for the booking of all musical acts as well as the sound equipment and lighting that they will use. We work hard to make the event an extraordinary experience for everyone at Penn State while celebrating its own students' creativity and art. We want the Penn State experience to help foster enthusiasm surrounding the arts.
We welcome you to join our cause! And of course, we'll do something for you in return. Please check out the rewards section to the right! The funding from this Kickstarter will go towards the payment of the headlining bands and smaller acts. We have been doing our best to fund this event on our own with Penn State, but we need at least $750 to make this year the best Arts Crawl yet!
Risks and challenges
We understand that like any festival-type event there can be plenty of hiccups that hinder our progress at Arts Crawl. We want our backers to know that we are perfectly capable of dealing with such problems!
If weather is an issue, we have the ability to relocate outdoor acts to more suitable locations and do it quickly!
For the headliner, we have hired a sound engineer to handle the expensive rented equipment and we guarantee that he will be able to manage the sound at the main state and handle any technical difficulties encountered there.
If there is equipment malfunctions on the other stages, SOMA has a number of members with experience using such equipment as well as back-up options should something go wrong. We should have no problem patching up any issues with local artists.
As far as running a musical event is concerned, SOMA collectively has experience running innumerable shows all over Pennsylvania as well as a number of successful Arts Crawls right here at Penn State.
Together we have the know-how to deal with the issues that may present themselves to us throughout Arts Crawl 2017 and are sure that we can make this event smooth and exciting for everyone involved!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
