Drexel University student organization Entertainment and Arts Society will be hosting their second annual Night of the Arts event May 19. The event will take place on campus in the URBN Annex, located at 3401 Filbert Street, starting at 4 p.m.
Night of the Arts is an event focused on showcasing various kinds of art such as visual art, performing art, music, comedy, film and poetry. The Entertainment and Arts Society has gathered numerous campus organizations involved in the arts to present their art and participate in the event, in the hopes of an incredible night reflecting on the many talents our campus holds.
The greater Philadelphia community has also been encouraged to come out and support the event, allowing it to also be an essential networking opportunity in which industry professionals, community members, alumni and faculty have all been invited.
There will be a raffle including special donations from Sony Music Entertainment, Live Nation, Eagles, Flyers, Shake Shack, Saxbys, Arden Theatre, Magic Gardens, Franklin Fountain and more.
Visual art will be on display throughout the Annex lobby, films will be playing in the screening room and there will be plenty of free food for guests to enjoy. The first performance will start with the Drexel Players at 5:30 p.m. After that, other student acts will take the stage including bands and artists such as Blueroom, Henri Tyler, TIOGA, Grayling, along with comedy and acapella groups such as 8 to the Bar, Drexel Football Team Comedy Improv and Drexel Cleftomaniacs.
The event is free for Drexel students, alumni and faculty, $5 for non-Drexel students with a valid student ID and $10 for community members. It will be sponsored by the Alumni Association, The Good Idea Fund and the Entertainment and Arts Society.
Be sure to come out and enjoy a great night celebrating Drexel’s artistic community!
