Arts Live 2017

Arts Live 2017

The fourth-annual Arts Live event, held throughout two days in late April, was a School-wide celebration of visual arts, theatre, and music. The theme was #VisualizePeace, and students were asked, “When you close your eyes and visualize peace, what do you see?” Their responses were photographed and hung throughout the School for visitors to see. Students in all divisions displayed a variety of artistic talents, from collaborative Mount Fuji sculptures and symbolic Sgraffito coil pots in the Lower School, to Mexican drinking vessels and music performances in the Middle School, and public speaking and Shakespear monologues in the Upper School.
