Here are some of our events from the past year.
VIP Art Show at the MV Playhouse
This past March, the MV Playhouse art space hosted a VIP art show and fundraiser. The show displayed vibrant drawings and paintings, as well as some quilts, jewelry, and sculptures created by VIP members around the theme of celebrating our island environment. The show later moved to an online gallery format and all the artwork sold, with a portion of the proceeds donated to VIP
Thank you to everyone who visited the gallery in person or online. Check out these two articles about the show:
VIP collaborated with Featherstone Center for the Arts to host a series of drawing, painting, and sculpture classes open to all. Many of the pieces created in these classes were shown and sold in the VIP Art show at the MV Playhouse Art Space this March.
Dine to Donate
VIP collaborated with The Wharf and Offshore Ale to host Dine to Donate fundraisers. Supporters, friends, and members of VIP enjoyed excellent meals out and a portion of their meal proceeds were generously contributed to VIP.
MV Playhouse director MJ Bruder Munafo guided us in theater games, exercises, and scenes to improve our stage skills and share the fun of live theater. In the Spring, we moved Drama Club to an online format. Drama Club is on its usual summer hiatus until the Fall.
VIP members gathered once a month for a delicious lunch at Barn, Bowl, and Bistro followed by an enthusiastic round of bowling.
Potluck Dinner & Dance
VIP members, friends, and families brought their best dishes and then boogied down to a local band at the Chilmark Community Center.
