Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center in Hopewell and Cobblestone Arts Center in Farmington recently partnered on a new mural for the venue this season.
Local artist Kim Bellavia and her assistant, Melissa Ridley, a junior at Canandaigua Academy, are working with students at Cobblestone’s Dayhab Without Walls program to complete the mural before the first CMAC show.
Students recently visited CMAC to add their own personal touch of creativity to the wall. The new mural features wings made from musical instruments, and will act as a place for patrons to take photos.
“We wanted to get the community involved with the new addition to CMAC,” said Lynn Freida, executive director. “Cobblestone Arts Center is an amazing asset for our local community, and we are thrilled with the partnership and the outcome so far. I’m sure our patrons will enjoy it as well. The wings provide the perfect photo op to commemorate a night under the CMAC stars.”
The official start of the CMAC season is June 23 with the John Fogerty and ZZ Top concert. Visit cmacevents.com to view the 2018 lineup.
Cobblestone’s Dayhab Without Walls program focuses on gaining confidence and independence through experiential learning. Participants range from students transitioning out of high school to senior citizens. The program combines classes and community enrichment activities, including trips to local museums, music venues, schools and libraries.
