Some 800 Boston College students exhibited their artistic achievements at the University’s eighth annual Arts Festival, which filled venues from O’Neill Plaza to O’Connell House, April 27–29. For the preceding seven months, the campus abounded with works in progress—blocking diagrams, red ink, second takes, repeated refrains—some of which were captured by BCM’s senior photographer in the images presented here. The BC Arts Council started the festival in 1999, as a one-day affair; the 2005 edition drew an attendance of 12,000 over three days. This year’s alumni award for distinguished achievement was given to Amy Poehler ’93, from the cast of Saturday Night Live.
