Cedar Crest Lecture Series

Spring 2024

The World of the Arts

From music to literature, film to poetry, people have been creating and enjoying various forms of art since prehistoric times. The arts bring communities together through entertainment and help to navigate challenging times. The arts help us celebrate achievements, disparage injustices, and educate generations. Join us this spring as we explore the world of the arts throughout history and across the globe.
