Albany Institute to host elementary exhibit, reception
N.Y. (May 1, 2019) -- An exhibit featuring artwork by City School
District of Albany elementary students will kick off Friday with a
reception at the Albany Institute of History & Art.
The event will be held from 5-8 p.m. at the institute, located at
125 Washington Ave. Admission is free Friday night, so you can check
out the talent of our students and explore all the museum has to offer
at the same time. You'll also have a chance to hear music performed by
band students from Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School.
The student exhibit will feature some 250 works by young artists
from all 12 district elementary schools. If you can't make it Friday,
you can still see the exhibit on Saturday and Sunday. However,
regular museum admission will be charged.
