Congratulations to 68 North Colonie elementary school young artists for having their pieces selected for inclusion in the annual Empire State Plaza Student Art Exhibit, coinciding with National Youth Art Month. North Colonie art teachers shared with their students knowledge about the Empire State Plaza permanent collection, which many art historians consider “the greatest collection of modern American art in any single public site that is not a museum.”
The Office of General Services will host the Student Art Exhibit through March 20, 2015, located at the end of the concourse, near the NYS Museum. The community is welcome to view the students’ work proudly displayed among many other selections from surrounding school districts.
