MECA's Spring Gala

Thursday evening, May 8, 2014

MECAmorphosis celebrates the 2014 Thesis Exhibition and introduces almost 100 emerging artists graduating from Maine College of Art in the BFA, MFA, and MAT programs, as well as raises critical scholarship funds to educate the next generation of artists.  

Tapas, cash bars, music by Emilia Dahlin & Adam Frederick, and interactive art throughout the College’s historic Porteous Building are highlights of this creatively festive Portland spring event. The evening concludes with the Runway Fashion Show, which premiers the collections of our majors in Textile and Fashion Design.
