We hope our 2017 Fall Open House was just as much fun for you as it was for us. Our expert faculty gave demonstrations and answered questions in nineteen different departments, Crucible artists sold and showed their work, youth discussed what a 'creative workforce' meant to them, and Villa Rocio's fed the masses with delicious $2 tacos.
