ATLANTA – Georgia Tech hosted the TechArts Festival, a two-day annual event showcasing the creative spirit through student and faculty projects, on April 12-13, 2013. Music, dance, theatre, digital, literary and visual arts flourish at the technological research university, inspiring and reflecting research and education.  The 2013 Festival included works that showcased the convergence of art and technology, and also works that were solely artistic in nature.  The Festival was free and held at both indoor and outdoor venues on the Georgia Tech campus.
