Exhibition of quilts by Chawne Kimber
Inspired by quilts made by her ancestors in the late 1800s, award-winning textile artist Chawne Kimber interprets traditional forms in an improvisational style, using vibrant modern colors of commercially available American-farmed, processed and woven cotton. Many of her works use the quilt medium to respond to current social justice issues.
An Auditorium of Ideas
Pulitzer Prize-winning Playwright and Choate graduate Edward Albee ’46 referred to the Arts Center as “an auditorium of ideas” at its dedication in 1972. Today, the Arts Center continues to support a wide range of artistic opportunities, accessible to all within the School and its neighboring communities thanks to free to affordably modest admission fees. Since 1972, the Arts Center has served as a creative hub, presenting guest artist, faculty, and student concerts, productions, exhibits, and more.
