 THE CLASSIC THRILLER: MEDEA
      Main Streets Neumann University
Arts Guild
> Neumann.edu
Much like Delco is a melting pot for a wide variety of cultures and traditions, The Arts Guild at
Neumann University is a melting pot of artistic and creative experiences. It might be the grace and beauty of
a ballerina en pointe that speaks to some . . . or maybe it’s the intellectual challenge of an inspiring and educational lecture or the musical complexity of a symphonic work of art. Others might like to relax at a light-hearted theatrical performance or wander through an art gallery to unwind and ponder at their own pace. Whatever your taste, the samplings here are sure to satisfy.
