'Aspiring Artists' Winners

Show is on display through March 12

Congrats to all!

Due to 'technical difficulties', the email from the Freeport Art Museum alerting each school of the award winners, did not go out as they thought. Therefore, we were not able to notify the winners to have them attend the 'Opening Night' last evening.


Barry Treu, FAM's Director of Education and 'Aspiring Artist' show coordinator, has asked each student to stop by the show and pick up their award and have their picture taken with their artwork.


The show had 496 pieces from 14 schools. Aquin had a winner in each category!

Congrats to all artists who had pieces selected for the show. Be sure to stop by and see the wonderful creations by all the students.
