February 21 – March 22, 2020

The Long Island Museum  is proud to present its 22nd annual student art exhibition, Colors of Long Island: Student Expressions opening to the public on February 21, 2020.  The exhibition affords an opportunity for hundreds of students from across Long Island to display their artwork in a museum setting.

Art teachers from public and private schools across Long Island in grades kindergarten through 12th grade were invited to submit up to two pieces of student artwork for the exhibition.  Traditionally, the theme, “Colors of Long Island,” allows for many creative interpretations.  While some students refer to Long Island’s landscapes, others prefer to focus on the cultural diversity that makes Long Island so beautiful.  The varying interpretations of this theme will be portrayed through a selection of media, including watercolor, sculpture, pencil, ink, oil pastel, photographs and computer graphics.

The museum will recognize the achievements of these talented students at two receptions scheduled for March 8, 2020 and March 22, 2020.  Parents, teachers, students and the general public are invited to attend.
