The halls of the Whitney Applied Technology Center have come alive! They are lined with the impressive art work of local high school students. The photos and drawings are all part of the CNY Scholastic Art Awards. More than 2,200 student artists from nearly 100 local schools submitted nearly 6,000 works of art. Approximately 1,600 of those made it into the Whitney building where they are on display. The gallery includes Gold Key (1st place) winners, Silver Key (2nd place) winners, recognition for honorable mention and special award honorees.
The CNY Scholastic Art Awards began more than 70 years ago and are the largest annual art competition in the country. The show is sponsored by M&T Bank. The art work will be on display through February 27. The exhibit is free and is open to the public.
