An Artistic Fusion of Heritage & Culture
Saturday & Sunday, February 24 & 25

This Black History Month, in the spirit of Anna & August Heckscher’s vision for the museum as a haven “especially for the children,” The Heckscher Museum of Art and The Leaders of the New School proudly present An Artistic Fusion of Heritage and Culture. This transformative event amplifies the artistic brilliance of BIPOC youth in Huntington. Through vibrant displays of visual and performing arts, this collaboration embodies The Heckschers’ commitment to inclusivity and offers a platform where young talents shine. Join us in honoring diversity, fostering creativity, and realizing the Heckschers’ dream of a museum that truly belongs to all, especially the youth who hold the future’s creative keys.
Leader of the New School’s mission is to provide empowerment, programs and resources to the youth disproportionately impacted by political, social and economic inequities.
