Each year MPAC invites Morris County Middle and High School students to participate in our annual Student Art Gallery Exhibit and Program Cover Art Contest.

Our mission is to entertain, enrich, and educate our audiences through a wide range of programming. MPAC is where our community comes together to be inspired, entertained and uplifted by the passion and the power of the performing arts.  The theme of the artwork should embody and express the following: Imagine! Discover! Create! “Celebrate MPAC and the Arts.”

Anna Thach, Grade 8, East Hanover Middle School, and Aliyah Ravin, Grade 11, Randolph High School, were selected as the winners of Mayo Performing Arts Center’s annual student art cover contest.  The artwork is featured below.

The winning works will appear on MPAC program book covers later this season, handed out at evening events. Approximately 10,000 will see their works on MPAC program book covers.

Over 70 students from area schools participated in the contest. The winning entries were announced at a reception on Monday, February 25, and all entries were displayed in MPAC’s Art Upstairs Gallery through March 3.

The MPAC Program Art Contest is an incredibly wonderful program providing students with the opportunity of taking on the role of a graphic artist while designing a potential cover for MPAC’s cultural presentations.  MPAC is extremely student and teacher friendly treating our student artists with great respect and professionalism.  The reception and award ceremony for all participating artists validates and honors them as artists while displaying all their work. Students who have won in the past have also expressed their gratitude for the recognition they received and have felt extremely proud of having their work appear on the front cover of MPAC’s program book.
