The 2018 Spring Soirée: An Evening of Celebration

It was an elegant evening of celebration for the Nashoba Brooks School community at the 2018 Spring Soirée: Champagne and Silhouettes on Saturday, April 28. More than 200 guests—including current and past parents, alumni, employees, member of the Board of Trustees and Board of Visitors—arrived in style to raise a glass to the many successes the School community enjoyed this year.
Event Co-Chairs Neal Dunn and Amy Happ as well as Parents Association President Jessica Green worked with School employees to oversee the event’s many details that brought the community together for mixing, mingling, and celebration.

The highlight of the evening included the unveiling of an all-School art exhibit in the Achtmeyer Gallery featuring 275 self-made student silhouettes. Under the guidance of art teachers Lisa Stanley and Kara Angeloni Williams, this art exhibit brought the concept of We the People—the central theme of Nashoba Brooks summer reading and year-long work—to life both artistically and through student involvement and interpretation.

Each grade worked together to develop these impactful images while bolstering their sense of community and belonging. Art teachers encouraged students to think beyond themselves and consider the community of artists at Nashoba Brooks School as they collaborated to create something new.

“Our student artists uncovered that there are many ways to look at people and this is just one perspective. An artist’s role is to help the viewer see something new,” said art teacher Kara Angeloni Williams.

It was a night to remember—thanks to all of those involved in making this night so special for our community.
