Maconaquah has arts foundation


The Maconaquah Fine and Performing Arts Foundation will host its first event, “An Evening with DaVinci and Company,” from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 9 at Maconaquah Elementary School.

The evening will include presentations by the drama, music and art departments k-12 with a special emphasis on panels reproducing the art of Leonardo DaVinci. Small groups will perform music of the season and the newly formed elementary choir will perform in the group room at 7:15 p.m. Refreshments will be served in the school cafeteria.

Board members Pat Piper, Greg Bevington and Mimi Berkshire will present an overview of the newly formed foundation. More than 55 Indiana public schools have formed foundations and the movement is growing. The Maconaquah Fine and Performing Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization supporting the teachers and students at the corporation with a stress on the fine arts.
