Elmont Art Department
The Visual Art programs of the Sewanhaka Central High School District encourage students to develop skills, create works of visual art, and study works of art within a historical and multicultural perspective. Our students will acquire the abilities to identify, interpret and evaluate works of art, investigate issues and questions concerning the nature and value of art. Beyond the building's mission statement and common core priorities, the Art department's goal is to provide an inspired, comprehensive education in the visual arts, while fulfilling the NYS Standards, and preparing serious visual art students for Advanced Placement coursework, portfolio development, possible scholarship opportunities, and Art college admission. Our teachers are highly qualified and extremely motivated art educators who are fully dedicated to providing the best education possible.
Kerry James Marshall at The Met Breuer
October 25, 2016- January 29, 2017
This major monographic exhibition is the largest museum retrospective to date of the work of American artist Kerry James Marshall (born 1955). Encompassing nearly 80 works—including 72 paintings—that span the artist's remarkable 35-year career, it reveals Marshall's practice to be one that synthesizes a wide range of pictorial traditions to counter stereotypical representations of black people in society and reassert the place of the black figure within the canon of Western painting.
