2015 Lecture by Jean Stern and the MPAPI Mini-Paintings Silent Auction

MPAPI’s Monday evening was filled with excitement, entertainment, and conversation.

The featured activity was the lecture by Jean Stern, Executive Director of The Irvine Museum on “The Art of Looking at Art.” His lecture was most informative and very entertaining.  He explained what makes art good and discussed paintings by many of the MPAPI artists participating in this year’s event as well as past years.

The evening opened with the silent auction of mini-paintings by this year’s participating artists. This was the third year for the silent auction.  Again it was very successful and almost all paintings were sold. A portion of the proceeds goes to West Maui Cultural Council to support community art programs.
