Doomsayers abound in 2012 – everyone from the Mayans to Nostradamus to fundamentalists seeks to assure us that the sky, indeed, is falling.
Amid all this comes an unlikely trio to offer yet another scenario, as well as the answer to surviving it. It’s all found in a nonfiction book called “Visions from Heaven: Climbing the Ladder to Spiritual Oneness.”
The BSC Arts and Communications Department sponsors ArtsQuest each school year. It is an annual celebration of music, art, theater, film and literature. ArtsQuest highlights the talents of BSC students and brings performances and presentations by renowned guest artists to campus and venues throughout the community
All ArtsQuest events are open to the public, and most are presented at no charge. Below is a schedule of ArtsQuest 2012 events as well as the headline performances. For more information go to http://info.bismarckstate.edu/artsquest/headliners.asp.

It’s for families who want to expand neighborhood strolls into the great outdoors. It’s for seasoned hikers looking for new experiences. And it’s for people who love the idea of hiking with their dogs.”
