This event is part of CC's Cornerstone Arts Week (Jan. 20-24). Highlighting the vital role the arts play within the liberal arts, the annual Cornerstone Arts Week focuses on a theme, posed as a question, that is examined through exhibitions, performances, special events, and interdisciplinary courses. This year’s question, showcasing the college’s new Film and Media Studies program, is a quote from Art Spiegelman: “What Are the New Words and Music?”
