Gala Reception

The Menlo College Art Committee cordially invites you to attend a gala reception to honor the College's 85th anniversary on Wednesday, March 26, 5-7 pm.

The Art Committee of Menlo College presents a new exhibition in its ongoing “Outside the Box, Inside the Frame” series. The exhibition will coincide with the College’s 85th anniversary.

Menlo College looks at the past 85 years through the eyes of artists. Artists from around the world were randomly assigned a year to illustrate. The 85 Years 85 Artists exhibit has been eagerly embraced by artists in 21 states, plus the Netherlands, England and Italy.
