Herricks Exhibits AP Art at Tilles Center


For the second consecutive year, AP studio art and photography students from Herricks High School have received the unique opportunity to showcase their work at the LIU Post Tilles Performing Arts Center. An assortment of photographs and original drawings and paintings are currently on display in the venue’s Patron’s Lounge. 

The featured artists were joined by their parents, teachers and Related Arts and Business Chairperson Mary Passero for a special opening reception on Oct. 13. Tilles Center Arts in Education Coordinator Susan Dunbar addressed the students and noted that their work will be seen by the public each day, as the lounge is open to patrons after performances. 
Attendees enjoyed refreshments as they admired the creative pieces. Students Nora Koe, Jaywon Woo and Kelly Yu provided musical entertainment that added to the artistic atmosphere. 

Of approximately 90 applicants, Herricks is among only eight school groups that were selected to share their talents through this exhibit. Their artwork will remain on display in the Tilles Center until Nov. 4.
