Why Art? 2011

This is the video that will be projected in the hallway at the entrance of the LMC for our Art Show Opening on May 2nd. We are putting together a "Why Art" campaign in response to the cuts to our department due to NYS's fiscal nightmare, and this video will be projected directly on to the students, parents, administrators and community members as they enter the show. In addition, over 100 students and the Art Department faculty are designing and wearing their own "Why Art?" t-shirts to both the opening and to the Board of Ed meeting the following night where we will give a presentation about our department, and where we will express our concerns about the current cuts.

  1. Very nice presentation... we must all advocate for the arts. Where there is art , there is culture, take it away and we are all deprived! Hoping things turn around everywhere, where art is on the chopping block !
