The massive snow storm hitting campus has caused The College of the Arts’ art entrepreneurs panel to be fully virtual Feb 4. 

Art Without Limits was originally taking place in the DI Hub from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the option of attending virtually. The organizers decided Wednesday it would be safer to have the event entirely virtual due to the inclement weather. 

The organizers sent emails out to the presenters to cancel their flights, but that didn’t matter because flights were already being canceled by airports, said Nick Petrella, a Kent State professor and the co-organizer of the event.

“After we made the decision, one of the presenters’  airline, probably 10 minutes later … said the flights were canceled anyway,” said Petrella.  

The event will have seven presentations focusing on the different parts of being an art entrepreneur.

“It only takes like 15 seconds,” said Petrella. “You get the links and then you can come and go as you please throughout the day.”
