MBMAG 2020 “Reflections” Exhibit at PVAC Postponed

Hello MBMAG members,

Due to the current health concerns we are all making adjustments and the PVAC exhibit “Reflections” is no exception.

PVAC is, and has been, closed even though they have hung but not opened the current exhibit “Campesino”. With this important show yet to be seen, they have asked if we would consider rescheduling our exhibit until next year.

The MBMAG board has agreed. I will be letting everyone know of a new date as soon as it is set.

Thank you all and most importantly, be well.

Toni Danzig
Chair, Exhibits Committee
