Dancing with Devils

The exhibition which was displayed in the Barnett Center Collaboratory during the 2022 fall semester and 2023 spring semester featured Latin American festival masks and documentary photographs of the Diablada de Píllaro (Devils Dance of Píllaro, Ecuador).

Creative Pathfinders

Creative Pathfinders is a webinar series, hosted by the Barnett Center for Integrated Arts and Enterprise in partnership with the Department of Art, the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD), the School of Music, the Department of Design, and the Department of Dance. In this series of interviews, College of Arts and Sciences alumni will be joined with Ohio State faculty and distinguished guests for a series of conversations that trace the career and highlight the groundbreaking accomplishments of our dynamic Ohio State alumni in the arts and design. Creative Pathfinders was envisioned as an opportunity to strengthen our connection to our collective alumni network while providing our current students with a chance to learn from some of our most accomplished graduates.
