A crowd of hundreds explored this week’s Huntington School District art show. Many were surprised that the work was created by students ranging in age from five to 18. The pieces on display covered just about every type of art.
The show utilized two-thirds of the Louis D. Giani Gymnasium. The exhibits were attractively displayed and the show itself was easy to navigate. There was something for everyone to appreciate.
The annual event is timed to coincide with the district’s budget vote and trustee election to maximize attendance. Voting was held in an adjoining section of the gym that was curtained off from the show. Voters were encouraged to visit the exhibits, where thousands of pieces of art awaited them.
There were also afternoon and evening fashion shows on Tuesday. Folks of all ages stopped to watch students display their designs on the catwalk.
“This was the first in-person district-wide art show since 2019,” said Brian Stellato, interim coordinator of K-12 art and music education. “I’m so incredibly amazed by the work done by all of our art teachers and their talented students. The show put smiles are everyone’s faces. I also would like to thank Tommy Ehlers and his entire staff for all of their assistance with set-up. An art show of this size does not happen without a ton of help and support from many.”
