Bank Manager Maria Fuentes is thrilled to be hosting the exhibit  “Our customers love it,” she said, “The artwork is just amazing.” She encouraged the public to stop by the bank before the exhibit leaves on Aug. 1.

The traveling exhibit is a 60-piece collection of original works created by Union County teens.  The pieces were selected from the more than 700  visual art works that were originally shown at the 2014 Union County Teen Arts Festival held in March at Union County College.  The annual event is administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in the Department of Parks and Recreation.

“The artwork in this exhibit is exceptional.  The fact that the artists are teenagers makes the show even more outstanding,” said Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak. “I encourage everyone to get out and see this lively exhibit as it goes on tour throughout Union County.”
