Arts Project ONLINE to feature visual artists

May 26, 2020

Arts Project ONLINE is a web event series featuring visual artists as they discuss their recent exhibit at Penn State Lehigh Valley. Each exhibit will be explored through the mind of the artist and through the lens of Google Expedition. Through these live conversations, the audience will share in the artistic process with a virtual, immersive tour of the exhibit. A great opportunity for anyone who is looking for ways to bring their work to life while being physically distant.
