The Lyceum Gallery Presents: Simply Delightful
The Derryfield School Lyceum Gallery is pleased to present: Simply Delightful! A virtual exhibition of the work of New Hampshire artist, Mike Durkee.
As students returned to in-person learning this fall semester, they were greeted with a vibrant mural created by artist Mike Durkee of Durkish Delights. With Covid-19 protocols limiting the Lyceum Galleries exhibition options this year, we challenged Durkee to create a piece that would be on display for the remainder of the school year and feature the core values of our school. What attracted us to Mike's work is his ability to blend nostalgia with imaginative storytelling in a bold and energetic way. His color palette, reminiscent of 80s and early 90s pop culture, is bold and playful, and it sets a joyful tone for one of the most trafficked hallways in our school.
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
