Congratulations to High School West AP Studio Art students Jensen Herbst and Jessica Struzinski on both being accepted into the Heckscher Museum's annual Long Island's Best high school art competition!

Jensen Herbst's work entitled, Bycatch is a charcoal drawing inspired by George Grosz's
Moveable Feast, 1958.
Jessica Stuzinski's work entitled, Greed is a Mutli-Color Viscosity Collagraph Print inspired by George Grosz's Eclipse of the Sun, 1926.

Now in it's 26th year, Long Island's Best is the hallmark of the Museum's educational programming. Long Island’s Best: Young Artists at The Heckscher Museum is the only juried exhibition on Long Island that offers high school students the opportunity to show their work in a museum.

Hundreds of works of art are submitted from schools across Nassau and Suffolk counties and approximately 80 are chosen for display in the exhibition.

Congratulations to the students and art teacher Steven Halem!
