A Day With The Stars: Celebrating Enlighten

This virtual photo exhibit documents a day with the “stars” — teen girls introduced to the arts, opportunities, mentors, and more through the Performing Stars of Marin “Enlighten Program — Young Women Exploring Their Futures.”

Performing Stars of Marin just celebrated its 30th anniversary, connecting girls who live in low-income areas with inspiring professional women.  Under the leadership of founder-director Felecia Gaston, more than 3,000 girls have been served by the non-profit program.

This virtual photo exhibit was created for Marin Television and will be viewable through February 28, 2021.

Music “Jogral” is courtesy by Jose Neto and Filo Machado.  Photographs and editing are by Barbara McVeigh and Maia Miglio.

COVID-19 Disclaimer: In person Art Walks have been cancelled until further notice.

The need to see art in person and to physically enjoy art together with fellow art lovers is understood and appreciated. However, in-person Art Walks are currently on hold until large group gatherings are absolutely safe for every person. Until then, we can fortunately enjoy the opportunity of online programing.

Anchored by Art Works Downtown galleries and artist studios in the heart of the Downtown San Rafael Arts District, the 2nd Friday Art Walk links venues along downtown Fourth Street in San Rafael, the second Friday of each month, 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
