Bookie’s Out of School Service Reflection – Magnan Metz Gallery

Over the course of a few weeks, I helped put up and take down the Friends Seminary Art show, SPICES, at the Magnan Metz Gallery.  The art pieces displayed were created by students, alumni, and parents from the Friends Seminary Quaker community because “S.P.I.C.E.S” derives from the Quaker values (Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship) that are the main core principles currently followed by Friends Seminary. When putting up the art, I, alongside other students and my advisor, Jesse Pasca, used hammers, drills, screws, and balancers to make sure the gallery looked very visually pleasing. When we had finished, it gave me great satisfaction to see the end result because we had worked both mentally and physically hard. It was also nice to see how talented the Friends community is as a whole and it was a great feeling to realize how many talented people I was/ am surrounded by. About two weeks passed and the show was ready to close. Jesse Pasca and I took down all the art pieces and wrapped them to give back to the artists or the art collectors. Because we did this on the night before school ended, it made me realize that all good things must come to an end.
