Dear MBA Alumni, Family, and Friends,
We are very excited to announce the 2019 Montgomery Bell Academy Art Show! This year's event will be held in the Davis Gallery, beginning Thursday, November 7, 2019. The 2019 Art Show will continue its successful tradition of showcasing both alumni talent and the artistic talent of our vibrant MBA community of friends, family, and faculty, as well as local and regional artists.
This year's show will run from Thursday, November 7 through Sunday, November 10. This year’s Featured Artist, Logan Hicks, is an urban stencil artist based in New York City, internationally well known for his participation in the Urban Underground art movement, and famed, among other artistic feats, for his larger than life mural on the Bowery Wall in Manhattan. We anticipate a large media following for his presence, which should translate into greatly boosted exposure for participating artists. A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibit will benefit our parent organization, the MBA Mothers Club, and the fine arts programs at MBA.
