Passport to the Arts in Clemson • 2017
Clemson's premiere town and gown event is returning for our best journey to date. Passport to the Arts 2017 will be held on Friday, March 3.
Now, in its 7th year, the Passport to the Arts continues to be an exciting, sellout, all-inclusive event. Join the Lee Gallery at Clemson University and The Arts Center of Clemson for an evening of fine art, entertainers, live music, drinks and exceptional food showcased at four different locations.
Bring your friends, grab your passports and let the Clemson Area Transit (CAT) shuttle take you on a visual arts tour of Clemson for a fun-filled evening. All shuttles feature entertainment, making your ride to each venue even more enjoyable. Our locations this year include The Arts Center, the CATBus Terminal, the Lee Gallery at Clemson University and Cox Hall at Clemson Little Theatre in Pendleton.
The food, music and artwork featured at each venue this year is fantastic! Full details below:
