Keene State Today

Winter 2014-15: The Arts Issue

The arts. They add color, texture, sound, and sensation to our lives. They help us see, hear, and experience the world more precisely and with a sense of wonder.

This issue of Keene State Today takes a look at alumni, students, and faculty who are engaged in the arts – some as professionals, some as amateurs, some as learners, and all as people who are following their passions.

Read through these pages for a celebration of things artistic and an affirmation of the importance of the arts in all of our lives.
