Fine Arts Festival

The Fine Arts Festival began in 1957 on recommendation from the Wisillminowas (WIMI) organization.  The intent was to promote music, drama, art, and literature at Luther College through a variety of exhibitions and speakers.  One important part of the Fine Arts Festival was the professional art exhibit and competition; Luther College purchased approximately 100 works of art from these competitions.  Although the campus-wide events ended in 1963, the Luther College art faculty continued the art exhibit and competition until 1968.
