Several young artists from Northport High School’s Art Honor Society worked alongside teacher Robin O’Neill-Gonzales to create six inch wide by six inch high artworks for the annual National Art Honor Society (NAHS) Collaborative installation at the Hecksher Museum of Art. Within the theme “Environmental Art,” students created over 30 pieces of original works which were then assembled onto 4 foot cubes for display in the museum.
NHS was one of ten participating districts from across Long Island this year. The artworks were each created within the theme of “Environmental Art” which was described by NAHS as “art that addresses social and political issues relating to the natural and urban environment.” In addition, the works were inspired by the museum’s Long Island Biennial 2022 exhibit, which displays contemporary artworks by local Long Island artists.
The exhibit will be on display at the museum through the remainder of May.
