Nathan Bishop Arts Night, May 19

I'm happy to share this announcement about Nathan Bishop Middle School Arts Night, which is happening tomorrow, Thursday, May 19, 5-9pm. It sounds fantastic. I wish I could go; unfortunately, the monthly PPSD Parent Advisory Committee meeting is happening at the same time.

Nathan Bishop Middle School’s Arts Night will showcase artwork created this school year by over 300 sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Featured are selections from Breathing as Drawing, Transforming Portraits, Typeface Design Posters, Word Portraits, Our Own Dinner Party, Design Challenges, Where I'm Going sculptures, Character Cards, Exercises in Perspective, Mythological Creature sculptures, Narrative Ceramic Tiles, ceramic Drinking Vessels, and wire exercises in Structure and Form, and Festival Ballet-inspired cut-out silhouettes.

There will be intermittent performances throughout the night by students, including classical, hip-hop and break dance; violin, cello, drums, piano, vocals, and other instrumentals.  A special performance by Nathan Bishop's Build Up the Beat group is scheduled as well.

Between 5-7pm, the NB Story Project student crew will be conducting interviews in the principal's conference room.  Project students interview our alumni and learn about the diverse neighborhoods and individual life stories that are vibrantly woven together through our school community. 

Bishop's Arts Night is part of Providence’s Gallery Night, so you can take the free Art Bus from downtown! For information on parking and more, go to: If you are not going to other galleries that night, you can park at school (101 Sessions Street).
