Four SHS students invited by Huntington Arts Council to display artwork in “Nightmare on Main Street” exhibit

The Syosset Central School District is pleased to announce that the Huntington Arts Council has selected the artwork of four Syosset High School students to be displayed in its Main Street Gallery this month.

“Nightmare on Main Street” is the Huntington Arts Council’s annual exhibit for student artists grades six through 12. This year’s spooky prompt invited students to submit work inspired by a description of a doctor during the Bubonic Plague. The Plague Doctor became a symbol for one’s last earthly moments. The long beak of the protective mask was filled with herbs and spices that were believed to filter out the “bad spirits.” Halloween is also a once-a-year opportunity to disguise yourself or be unknown, and to celebrate the darker parts of life.

Sixteen Syosset students submitted artwork to the competition, and four were selected to have their work shown in the physical gallery space.  The show begins this Friday, October 21st and concludes on November 12th at the Huntington Arts Council’s Main Street Gallery. In addition to the physical show, every student who entered this year will be featured in an online gallery posted on the Huntington Arts Council website. 

Congratulations to Maya Almaliah, Scout Chen, Lexi Hugel, and Molly Lebolt!
