MECA's Spring Gala

Friday Evening, May 1, 2015


MECAmorphosis celebrates the 2015 Thesis Exhibition and introduces over 80 emerging artists graduating from Maine College of Art in the BFA program, as well as raises critical scholarship funds to educate the next generation of artists.
 
Held in collaboration with Portland’s First Friday Art Walk this year, access to the 2015 Thesis Exhibition is free and open to the public. There will be light fare and interactive art throughout the College’s historic Porteous Building. The evening includes a ticketed Runway Fashion Show in the ICA, which premiers the collections of our majors in Textile and Fashion Design. A private Artist’s Party on the top floor will be the highlight of this creative spring event.
