The DAX week kicked off with FABrication Labs (FAB Labs) in the Hopkins Center Garage (formerly the Studio Art drawing studios), which were held with the motto "make something!" Students assisted visitors in learning to make animated videos, digital musical instruments, and other creative projects.

The week-long arts series was highlighted by an exhibit of student work in the Black Family Visual Arts Center on May 9 from 7 to 10 p.m. Visitors to the DAX exhibition had the opportunity to play games, listen to digital music installations, demo new technologies, virtually paint on the walls, and watch two film screenings, one of student computer animation and a short, live-action movie created with digital technology.
