High Arts Showcase XVI is a component of the Arts in Education JOURNEY Program providing partner school students with the opportunity to present their talents in a gallery setting through visual art. This unique exhibition enables 11th and 12th grade students to learn firsthand what is involved throughout the exhibition experience; from submitting entries, writing bios and/or artist statements as well as interaction with the arts community.
There are 8 high schools in our participating districts. JOURNEY partner school districts this year are Cold Spring Harbor, Commack, Harborfields, Huntington, Kings Park, Northport-East Northport, Plainview-Old Bethpage and South Huntington.
JOURNEY has been Huntington Arts Council’s successful Arts in Education school program since it was established in 1985 by Chairperson Sandy Chapin, local area educators and in partnership with district administrators. JOURNEY has multiple elements; CTLE Cultural Arts Workshops, Discovery Chests, High Arts Showcase, and in school Visiting Artists. The individual pieces of JOURNEY create the framework for this district-wide program, integrating culture and art to provide a more inclusive understanding of how we interact with the world and promoting cultural understanding and appreciation through the arts.
