Now in its 24th year, this exhibition features extraordinary works of art created by Long Island high school students! 388 students from 58 high schools submitted artwork for jurying this year. 100 works were selected by Karli Wurzelbacher, Heckscher Museum Curator, and guest juror Nancy Richner. (That makes this the largest Long Island’s Best ever, in honor of the Museum’s 100th Anniversary!) 

For the first time, this new online format features all of the exhibition’s components, including artist statements written by each student, images of artwork from the Museum’s exhibitions that inspired students, videos about select artwork, and more!
