Niskayuna High School art students selected for exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum

A dozen Niskayuna High School students had their artwork selected to be a part the 2018 Reimagining the Four Freedoms Student Exhibition at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA.

The exhibition, running until April 8, commemorates former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union speech, in which he believed every American was entitled to Four Freedoms. Norman Rockwell, a 20th century American painter and illustrator, duplicated these Four Freedoms in a poster series, which is coming up on its 75th anniversary. To honor this occasion, students were asked to create a work of their own which reimagines what the Four Freedoms may be in 2018.

The exhibition is representative of 100 plus works from nine surrounding Capital Region school districts. It is being held in conjunction with National Youth Art Month and is sponsored by the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Capital Area Art Supervisors (CAAS) group, and the New York State Art Teacher’s Association (NYSATA).

Congratulations to Tasneem Abdalla, Zahra Arshad, Farah Elgala, Shaima Hussaini, Grace Kayastha, Lindsey Matthews, Gabriella McKee, Bianca Montelongo, Desirae Rogers, Bruce Tangredi, Sara Wall, and Celeste Whittam.
