  • 4th Annual BCAM Night to Shine Gala

    BCAM Night to Shine Spring Art Exhibition: Friday, June 2nd, 6pm-8pm

     

    The theme of this year’s art collective is fittingly Our ‘Futurism’ is Now!  It is our community’s claim that securing a significant stake in our competitive and increasingly volatile world means representing ourselves, our culture and our experiences  with clarity and no compromise. The evening will be a presentation of our strongest performance, media and visual art, and also a special celebration of our seniors as they formally announce where they will attend college in the fall. 

    The event will be preceded by our parents engaging in Community School Forum workshops in our library.

    Admission is free for everyone, although you are welcome to make a donation to our school’s art programming any time during the evening.
