Celebrating its 17th season, Modfest 2019 is Vassar College’s annual exploration of the arts of the 20th and 21st centuries. This year’s theme “in motion” seeks to explore movement in its many forms. Events will take place January 31 to February 10.

This year’s festival marks the first time Modfest is moving off the Vassar campus – there will be an event in the newly-renovated Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn. Modfest 2019 features award-winning guest artists, faculty members, and students presenting music, visual art, dance, film, workshops, and lectures.

Modfest co-directors Christine Howlett and Tom Pacio join us. Christine is an Associate Professor, Director of Choral Activities, and Chair of the Music Department at Vassar College and Tom is the Interdisciplinary Arts Coordinator at Vassar College.
