The Spring Arts Festival at Kennesaw State is an annual community event offering the chance for art lovers of all ages to partake in visual and performing arts activities.

Thank you for joining us this past Saturday, March 23, 2019. It was a fantastic day!

    The Artist Market features artists’ booths offering wares and art for sale from ceramics, jewelry, paintings and sculpture to photography, and fiber arts. Alumni and student clubs were encouraged to participate. Exhibiting applicants artworks were adjudicated based on technical ability, originality of the art, and quality of the booth display. Judging and awards for “Best Booth” was held on the date of the event. The winner receives a trophy and will be offered a free booth space the following year.
