On Saturday, May 5, 2012, at 6 p.m. the Academy Art Museum will host its annual Paint the Town fundraiser at the Avalon Theatre/Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD. This year’s theme, PAINT THE TOWN MOROCCAN! promises an exotic adventure to the Kingdom of Morocco. The evening begins at the historic Avalon Theatre with the enchanting music of the five key regions of Morocco. Moroccan appetizers and drinks will be served at the Academy Art Museum, followed by Dinner Under the Tent with authentic Moroccan cuisine and wines. Former US Ambassador to Morocco Ed Gabriel and his wife Kathleen Linehan are Honorary Chairpersons, along with Event Chairs Leslie Westbrook, Carolyn Williams, and Joyce Doehler.

Last year’s event, PAINT THE TOWN CUBAN! raised over $93,000 to support the Academy Art Museum’s mission to enhance cultural life on the Eastern Shore by making available to everyone the Museum’s expanding art collection, exhibitions, and broad spectrum of arts programs for dance, painting, music and more. The Museum’s ArtReach program reaches out to schools and community groups to offer meaningful field trips in conjunction with its exhibitions, while its Art to Go program addresses the needs of underserved populations on the Mid-Shore.
