Are You LoKo for the Arts?

Thanks to the spirit and generosity of the festival’s benefactors Kathy (Kofoed) ’54 and Don Lougheed (Hon. ’54), SUNY Potsdam celebrates the campus culture of creativity and reinforces how important the arts are to informing innovated learning environments for every discipline as well as a lifetime of creativity for anyone who is crazy for the arts. For ten days the campus and community experience a diversity of both traditional and contemporary visual, written, musical, dance and theatrical performances.

At Potsdam we are not "loco" for the arts, we are LoKo for the arts. Being LoKo for the arts means, like Kathy and Don Lougheed, we embrace the diversity of the human experience, challenge individuals to look at life from a variety of perspectives and embody the creative spirit that informs a rich and innovative life.
