The Annual Living Art Show arrived at the Abbey this week. Under the direction of Mrs. Allie Micheletti '05, Art History AP students quite literally brought their favorite pieces of art to life, creating tableaux of famous works of art. In total, 14 pieces of art were reenacted by students individually and as groups. In addition to the actors, students also stood by to explain the significance and meaning of the individual pieces. Sheila Joyce '19 served as the evening's production manager.
