The art work of nine Niskayuna High School students will be on display at the
Norman Rockwell museum as part of a commemorative exhibit that marks the 75th
anniversary of former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s State of the Union
Four Freedoms speech.
The Capital Area Art Supervisors and the museum invited all Capital Region Studio in Art Classes to participate in the "2016 Four Freedoms Student Exhibition." As a result, students in high school art teacher Melissa Leach's class created a work of their own which honors their fundamental freedom as an adolescent. The select pieces were chosen to represent Niskayuna in the culminating student art exhibit on display at the museum in Stockbridge, Mass.
Congratulations to the following Niskayuna High Schools students for having their artwork selected to be a part the Norman Rockwell Four Freedoms Student Exhibit, which will be on display from March 11 through April 3, 2016.
