Annual Art Show
An annual public school art show featuring student work at Sotheby's is organized by my office and PS 183.
In 2015, participating schools included: PS 183, PS 77, PS 290, PS 151, Vanguard HS, PS 169, PS 6, PS 527, MS 177, and it was my pleasure to deliver certificates to all participating students.
Creativity must be nurtured in schools by promoting the arts and the work of our public school children as an investment in them and their future. The Sotheby's show continues a rich tradition of having this event in City Council District Five. I am proud to promote creativity by giving students a platform to share their work. Thanks to Principal Tara Napoleoni, Art Director Wan Ling Fahrer, teachers and parents, and students at PS183 for working so hard to make this happen, as well as the Sotheby’s staff.
It is my goal to have every District Five School participate. Please let me know if you are interested by emailing artshowbenkallos [dot] com.
