PULLMAN, Wash. – The kick-off event for the recently launched Campus Art Tour will take place 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at Washington State University Pullman.
The night “has expanded to become a celebration of arts on campus,” said Angel Nava, arts and programming coordinator in the Office of Student Involvement.
 
Early evening activities will be geared towards families and community members, with more student-focused activities later. The events will take place at the Glenn Terrell Mall, Terrell Library Plaza, CUB, Museum of Art, CUB Art Gallery and Fine Arts Center Plaza.

Entertainment will include: Titanium Sporkestra, a renegade marching band; Pyrosutra, a group of fire dancers; and Stage/Nuthouse, improv actors doing flash mobs. Live music will play throughout the evening.
 
In addition to art demonstrations, creative activities, outdoor digital projections, a fashion show, a green bike parade and a stud painting project with Habitat for Humanity, there are a host of activities that play to the night-time theme.
 
WSU students will create illuminated art installations; there will be glow cup root beer floats, a glowing face paint station and a black light dance party. At 10 p.m. in front of Todd Hall, people can participate in a world record attempt to create the largest glowstick design.
 
A schedule of events will be available the week of Sept. 5-9 at http://seb.wsu.edu/seb_campus_art_tour.aspx.
