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.
