Great Expression/Gran Expresión
11th Annual Adams State University Autumn@Adams
September 8th through September 13th, 2014
The 2014 theme, Great Expressions/Gran Expresión promises to hold many events focusing on self-expression in physical activities, visual art, poetry, music, theatre, dance, and other forms of creating self. The Autumn@Adams Committee is currently planning and organizing events for the 2014 Autumn@Adams Week. This Website will be updated as events are scheduled.
For many years, Adams State has organized events revolving around a select theme and choosing a week in September to host these educational and entertaining events.
Themes from past years include:
- 2013 Health, Fitness, and Beyond
- 2012 The American Dream: Yours, Mine, and Ours;
- 2011 Honor Your Story-Discover Your Possibilities;
- 2010 Everyone Has a Story to Tell;
- 2009 Transformations Begin Here;
- 2008 Our Earth-Our Valley;
- 2007 Understanding Peace;
- 2006 Roots Remembered.
The first two years, 2005 and 2004, themes were not developed for Autumn@Adams.
In the past, the campus has brought in nationally-known speakers, authors and entertainers, such as: Thomas Linzey, James Bilagody, Laura Pritchett, Sean Carroll, Denise Chavez, Demetria Martinez, and Grammy Award winning pianist Daryl Davis. Local and regional talent is also tapped to round-out the events.
Beginning in 2008, Autumn@Adams Week includes the popular Cook-Off.
