The sprawling exhibit will feature artwork ranging from painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and computer graphics to advertising, fashion design, photography and video arts.
Admission to the show is free and open to the public. The exhibit will showcase fantastic artwork created by Huntington students on every grade level. The pieces will include every type of media and showcase the numerous opportunities available to students in fine and computer-generated art studies.
On Tuesday, May 17, a fashion show consisting exclusively of student clothing designs will be held at 4 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. Dozens of students will be showing their designs on the walkway in Louis D. Giani Gymnasium.
Artwork of every possible type will be exhibited throughout the day from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on May 17. Residents voting on the budget and capital reserve propositions and two trustee positions will be able to conveniently visit the art show either before or after casting their ballots.
