The creativity of Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School seniors will take center stage next week at the annual Evening of the Arts, which promises a lively agenda this year.

Held at the Performing Arts Center, the evening will take place on Wednesday, May 24 from 6 to 9 p.m. as part of a yearly run-up of celebrations honoring the graduating class. Each year the corridors of the school are decked out with student artwork showcasing ingenuity such as cardboard furniture, mobile sculptures and mixed-media visual art.

Although the Covid pandemic had put the event temporarily on pause, art, design and technology department chair Chris Baer said this year marks a full return to form. For the first time since pre-pandemic, the performing arts department will be holding a coffeehouse of spoken word and other short, live performances from 7 to 8 p.m.

“It’s nice to bring them back again instead of just having the visual arts,” Mr. Baer said.

The night will also include several live artmaking demonstrations, including a bring your own T-shirt printmaking station led by drawing and painting instructor Tiffany Shoquist. Instructors Chris Connors, Brendan Coogan and Elsbeth Todd will be curating seniors’ work from the computer technology, crafts and sculpture, and architecture and design departments, respectively.

“You can expect to see some interesting collaborations [across departments],” Mr. Baer said, noting that disciplines such as game design and fashion have particularly taken off in recent years.

To keep visitors engaged all evening long, advanced placement studio art students will also be installing interactive exhibits throughout the PAC, and seniors will hold panel discussions about their work in the PAC lobby.

“I have no idea what they’re going to be like yet, but I know they’ll be interesting,” Mr. Baer said of the AP art installations. “There’s a lot to look forward to.”

The event is one night only. Admission is free.
