Many art exhibitions do not allow visitors to interact with the presentation, but Utah State University (USU) is attempting to change this as they introduce the new Caine College of Arts (CCA).

Recently, USU announced its first Celebration of the Arts week to welcome new students to the CCA and get them involved, according to The Utah Statesman. Concerts and public art galas are a part of the honorary week, along with the opportunity to participate in individual events.

The Paint by Gum wall mural idea, created by graduate student Brian Cook, will encourage students to partake in a Vincent van Gogh replica of "Wheatfield with Cypresses." Individuals will be able to place their colored gum on the wall to develop a design over time.

Theater enthusiasts will also be holding the Evening of One Acts event to give budding actors the opportunity to come out of their shells. Students will be responsible for directing and producing the entire show, encouraging them to use what they have learned to showcase their talent.

Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
