An exhibition of artwork from the winners of the Westbury Arts contest at Westbury Middle and High Schools
The Contest and Trip: For several years now, Westbury Arts has held an art contest for students at Westbury Schools and sponsored a trip to NYC for the winning students. This year, the contest was held at both the Middle and High Schools. Students were asked to prepare artwork under the direction of their teachers, which was then judged by members of Westbury Arts. 26 winners were selected from each school. Their prize is a day trip to New York City that includes a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, lunch in Manhattan, and a Broadway show. This year’s trip will take place during Spring Break on April 8th. This program is led by Westbury Arts Board of Directors member, Chris Hobbs, and chaperoned by Westbury Arts volunteers.
The Art Exhibition Opening: The artwork of the student winners will be on display in our gallery during the month of April. Parents, family, friends, and members of the community are invited to join us for the opening reception on April 1st, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
Join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our wonderful young emerging artists! RSVP for free on Eventbrite.
