THE ANNUAL CHILDREN'S ART SHOW
June 12, 2022

It was an incredible day at The Garden City Historical Society as we  celebrated all of this year’s winners of our second annual Children's Art Show.

This year's theme was "Art in the Park," which was inspired by the 

the Impressionism movement, and talented artists like Claude Monet and Mary Cassatt.  The Garden City Historical Society once again partnered with Garden City School's Art Administration for this amazing effort. Children were educated about the Impressionism Movement and encouraged to seek inspiration by visiting local parks, like the Garden City Bird Sanctuary, gardens like Old Westbury Gardens or Planting Fields or even their own backyard and create a nature-inspired masterpiece for a chance to win in our art show!

 

Family, friends, students and faculty were in awe as they viewed the impressive exhibit of the 47 winners works of art. The winning works of art were displayed throughout the museum for all to see. Each winner went home with an official certificate, a mounted photo of their winning work of art to hang at home and winning token to reward them for their talent and hardwork.

We were honored to have both Dr. Sinha, the superintendent of Garden City Schools and Nina Prasso, Director of Arts and Music present at the award ceremony. A special thank you to The National Charity League for their support once again in the set up of the award ceremony and distributing refreshments and sweets to guests.

As always, we are very much looking forward to continuing this annual tradition next year! To view all of the beautiful artwork from this year's contest, please click below.
