Peggy Low, the Arts-in-Education Coordinator at the Huntington Arts Council is please to announce that two Silas Wood students were chosen to have their work displayed at the Heckscher Museum of Art.  Chosen to participate at the 13th Annual School Art Contest were Alyssa Christiansen and Vanessa Franco. “Both girls did an awesome job using pencils as their medium,” said Ms. Maribeth Hickey, Silas Wood art teacher.  “The contest asked that students create an original piece depicting Spring in their community.” Congratulations to both these fine artists as well as their art teacher Ms. Hickey.

An awards reception will be held on Friday, May 3rd at 5:00 pm with the awards for the top 3 art pieces at 5:15. Refreshments are usually served and the public is welcome.
