MARYMOUNT TO HOST INTERACTIVE VERNISSAGE

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, MAY 2, 2011 – Showcasing the work of their talented students has become so routine at Marymount Academy that on May 26 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., the public is invited to the school (5100 Cote St. Luc Road) not just to take in their sixth Annual Vernissage but to participate in it as well.

In what is truly a first for the school, students from the Secondary III International Baccalaureate Visual Art class have arranged for the attending audience to participate in a mural display under the theme of “Hip Hop Graffiti”.

On hand will be a professional artist from EN MASSE who will be directing any the graffiti mural painting, open to all guests who have an interest in participating. Additionally, keeping with the theme of the evening, other forms of art will be on display which include performances by a Hip Hop Dance crew as well as by Marymount’s Improv team.

As the evening is still the school’s annual Vernissage, the wonderful work by the students will also be on display. A silent auction will also be held with all proceeds being reinvested in the art program.
