  • The Rural By Design exploration of rural sustainability shifted to a barn setting Friday afternoon as students in the dance department at Kenyon College presented a series of vignettes which unfolded in and around a barn.

The audience was treated to the serenity of this rural setting and the vision the students brought to the program. style=
