Herkimer County Youth Art Month Opening Reception March 1
Exhibition runs Feb. 16 to April 1 during business hours

Feb. 29, 2016



The Opening Reception for the seventh annual Herkimer County Youth Art Month Show takes place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, at the Bassett Network Healthcare lobby at 321 E. Albany St. in Herkimer.
 
The exhibition, featuring 190 works of art from local school districts, runs through April 1 during business hours.
 
In celebration of Youth Art Month, Herkimer County Art Circles, a professional development group of art educators from area schools, sponsors the exhibition each year.
 
The exhibition features student artwork from kindergarten to grade 12 selected from local districts including Frankfort-Schuyler, Central Valley, Herkimer, Little Falls, Richfield Springs, Poland, Owen D. Young, West Canada Valley and Mt. Markham.
 
This year marks the seventh year of collaboration with Bassett Healthcare Network’s Herkimer facility providing community access to student artwork.
 
The objectives of Youth Art Month are to direct attention to the value of art education, recognize art as a necessity for the full development of a better quality of life for all people, build support for art programs in the school curriculum and recognize art education as a viable component for the development of our future citizens in a global society.
 
Youth Art Month is in its 54th year of celebration across the nation and is sponsored by the Council for Art Education, NASCO and AMACO, the National Art Education Association and the New York State Art Teacher’s Association.

Donnalyn Shuster serves as the co-chairperson for New York state and chairperson for this exhibition.
