Washington, DC, October 3, 2017—It was announced today by David Franek, president and chief creative officer of The Design Channel (TDC), that the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) has engaged the agency to develop its arts program overview brochure for the 2017-18 season.

“We’ve worked with CSM on a number of projects over the years and we always enjoy the collaboration,” says Franek. “We know that CSM provides an outstanding two-year foundation in many fields that enables its students to easily transition to some of the most well-regarded four-year colleges and universities anywhere.”

The brochure will serve as a season-long overview of all arts-related happenings at CSM, including stage productions, dance, music and vocal performances, visual arts, literary readings, children’s theater, cause theater, and more. The programs and events outlined in the brochure will take place across CSM’s campuses in La Plata, Prince Frederick, and Leonardtown.
