The BMC Alumni Association (BMCAA) met April 22 to collaborate on a triptych for auction at next month’s 70th Anniversary Gala. Over twenty alumni and students showed up at Bento Miso Collaborative Workspace in downtown Toronto and, by the end of evening, had created three canvases.
“It was great to see alumni Doris Leung from the Class of 2004 and Shelley Chen from 2010 at last night’s Art Attack. That’s the point of these events. To keep alumni connected with each other and with the BMC Program,” said Andrea Gauthier, Co-President of the BMCAA.
The overall theme for the triptych was “forest” with each panel having a red, green or blue colour scheme. The panels, “Forest of Creatures and Anatomical Features”, “Marc’s Sabbatical” and “More Darkness” will be available to bid on for purchase through the 70th Anniversary Gala’s silent auction. Funds raised will be donated in honour and in memory of Professor Steve Gilbert who passed away February 2014.
The 70th Anniversary Alumni Reunion & Gala take place Saturday, May 30, 2015. Click here for more information on the day’s events and to register to attend.
