Honoring Creativity and Talent at Tilton Arts Festival
This year marked the 3rd annual Tilton School Arts Festival, which took place on Sunday, May 19th as a part of our campus wide Spring Fling weekend.
The Arts Festival is a time for our RAM community to come together in celebration of the arts and many creative talents of our peers. Students participated in or enjoyed live musical and dance performances, an opportunity to throw clay on the pottery wheel, a viewing of student made work and much more. This event started with Remy Steevensz, a well-loved, immensely talented, and deeply missed faculty member.
Remy joined Tilton School in 2005 as a graphic design teacher and became a dorm head, with husband John Elfring. Their door was always open even when not on duty, and Remy made an immeasurable impact on her advisees, fellow faculty members, and everyone she came into contact with. Remy organized the first Arts Fest which started in the spring of 2017 as a celebration of visual and performing arts where both faculty and students can demonstrate their talents, participate in workshops, and try new activities they may not have been exposed to otherwise. Remy would not get to see the first Arts Fest come to fruition. Remy passed away suddenly in April of 2017 after over 10 years of loving Tilton School.
We continue Arts Festival in Remy’s honor. This tradition allows us to branch out and recognize talents - some that we’ve been watching develop all along, and some that we are seeing for the very first time,
