Bar Harbor-On Saturday, Feb. 23, College of the Atlantic students are transforming Gates Community Center into an art center and offering a special treat. The students are presenting Reverie, decorating the space with rugs and pillows, placing art on the walls, screening films, offering finger food, performing music—and more.

The evening is being organized by members of the group The Moral Imperatives, which features students Addie Namnoum on vocals and guitar, Anjali Appadurai on vocals and piano, Eloise Schultz on vocals and trumpet, Joe Perullo on drums, and staff member Sean Murphy on bass. The group performs a repertoire that includes alternative rock, folk, classical, and jazz. Joining them will be musicians Ben Moniz and Robin Owings.

Additional COA musicians will perform, as well as COA poets. Chloe Cekada will offer shadow art, while filmmakers Devin Altobello and Zabet Neucollins will screen some of their short work. Other students will prepare finger food for the evening.

Admission will be $5 to cover the costs of the evening, as well as the V-Month events in the community. For more information about Reverie on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m., contact Eloise Schultz at or 207-288-5015.
