This annual exhibition features extraordinary works of art created by Long Island high school students. Hundreds of young artists from more than 50 high schools will submit artwork for jurying this year, with approximately 80 selected by Karli Wurzelbacher, Heckscher Museum Curator, and guest artist and juror Melissa Misla. This school year has been like no other, challenging art teachers the Museum to rethink what art education looks like. As you will see, students rose to the occasion, participating in virtual field trips and creating powerful artwork that speaks to all we have experienced and learned.
Experience the exhibition in person beginning April 17* and virtually beginning April 24! All of the exhibition’s components, including artist statements written by each student, images of artwork from the Museum’s exhibitions that inspired students, and videos about select artwork, will be available here.
*Exhibiting students, friends and family, Museum Members and Donors are invited to Preview Days on April 17, 18, 22, and 23. Exhibition opens to the public on April 24. See Related Events details below.
