Fyer re: Artists Response to Human Rights exhibit at SUNY Orange Hall Middletown November 30 to December 14

Fourteen Monroe-Woodbury High School students participated in “An Artist’s Response to Human Rights,” an art exhibit sponsored annually by the Orange County Human Rights Commission. This year, M-W is represented by  Jessica Ader, Ashley Alvarado, Luca Auteri, William Carter, Ket Cordova, Nicholas Dabney, Kelly Duggan, Jillian Fabbro, Nora Gmelch, Amy Heimowowitz, Kyra Ianuzzi, Tiana Liggio, Cymmone Rios,  and Autumn Romano. Their artwork will be displayed at Orange Hall Gallery, SUNY Orange Middletown, November 30 – December 14, 2018. The Gallery is open Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, December 2, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at Orange Hall Gallery.

For the past eight years, M-WHS art students have participated in this annual exhibition. The process begins with the artists reviewing and researching the thirty articles outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948.  Each artist chooses one of the articles and creates a visual interpretation of its meaning. This sampling of their work demonstrates the variety of their interpretations.
