“There are artists from all over the world that have work included in the program,” said Barry Jones, associate professor of art at APSU and director of Terminal. No student work will be featured in the show. Two alumni, Alex Ewin and Robb Fladry, will have work featured.

“I hope that people come and enjoy themselves and that the festival gains regional attention and attracts visitors from all over the area,” Jones said. “One of the more exciting parts of the festival is that it will be held outdoors using a large, outdoor movie screen.”

The sponsors plan to hold the event annually.
