Warren Wilson College was a regional sponsor for Moogfest, held April 23-27 in downtown Asheville.

From public art exhibits to experimental music workshops and urban architectural installations, Moogfest 2014 brought today’s foremost thinkers, artists, futurists, scientists and innovators to engage in a dialogue of innovation and creativity. Moogfest aims to stimulate conversations and introduce current and future generations to a new way of looking at the world around them.

Warren Wilson College students, alumni, faculty and staff were a part of that effort.

“The College’s association with Moogfest provided our students, staff and faculty the opportunity to be active at the intersection of technology and art–on the frontier of innovation,” President Solnick said. “Our drone took photographs that Moog will use to assess the economic impact of the festival, student photographers produced social media content, and our craft initiative partners at the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design hosted a durational performance in their gallery space.”
