UNION, NJ - The artworks of 26 Elizabeth students, more than any other Union County municipality, are featured in the Union County Teen Arts Touring Exhibit, now on display until September 25 at the Connect One Bank, located at 2003 Morris Avenue in Union.

The 2015 Union County Teen Arts Festival is an annual event administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in the Department of Parks and Community Renewal. The touring exhibit consists of 60 pieces of art selected from more than 650 visual art works shown at the Festival held in March at Union County College in Cranford.

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