| March 14, 2019

Artwork by Mohonasen students in grades K-8 was part of the recent 2019 Empire State Plaza Art show, which kicked off Youth Art Month at the state capital.

More than 650 people attended the opening, which featured student work from 14 Capital Region school districts. The keynote speaker at the event was Jennifer Childress, Arts Associate for the New York State Education Department.

Teachers from the Mohonasen Art Department submitted more than 60 pieces of unique art representing the best work of district students. Students created colorful pieces inspired by the Empire State Plaza art collection, which is in the style of Abstract Expressionism.

The student artwork has been viewed by lawmakers, legislative staff, workers and visitors to the Plaza. It will be on display in the South Concourse through Monday, March 18.

Congratulations to our student artists and our teachers, Mr. Blais, Mrs. Empie and Mrs. Murray! #MohonProud
