Legislative Art Exhibition

Caitlin Wemette and Brittni Curtin have been chosen as Maple Hill High School's representation at the 22nd Annual Legislative Student Art Exhibition. Both were accepted for their self-portraits.  School districts from across New York State participate in this exhibition.

The NYSATA Legislative Exhibit is co-sponsored by the New York State Alliance for the Arts in Education (NYSSAE). This student art exhibit is held in the Legislative Well in the Capitol Building in Albany each spring. Legislators from across the state are invited to share the artistic accomplishments of their aspiring artist constituents at a reception for students, parents and teachers. Each student receives a certificate from NYSATA and many receive letters and/or photographs from their elected representatives.
