LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Arts Council of Livingston (ACL), which showcases the work of Livingston High School’s Advanced Placement (AP) students in its annual "Student Perspectives" exhibit, still managed to do so despite the pandemic by releasing a video montage of the artwork. All artwork can be seen in the images above, or the video can be seen in its entirety BY CLICKING HERE.
The exhibit features work from Livingston students in AP Digital Imaging, AP Ceramics/3D Design, AP Photography and AP Studio Art. A full list of student artists can also be seen in the photos above.
Although the exhibit was displayed at Livingston Town Hall on March 2 as intended, residents were not able to enjoy the artwork after March 15, as the facility has been closed to the public since then due to COVID-19. Instead, the exhibit was presented virtually at the end of June with the support of Mayor Rudy Fernandez and members of the Livingston Township Council, who had initially scheduled a reception for March 23 as part of “Youth Art Month.”
In addition to the township council and other Livingston Town Hall representatives, the ACL also extended gratitude toward the Livingston Board of Education and Livingston Public Schools (LPS) administrators; LHS Principal Mark Stern; the LHS custodial and maintenance staff; LHS art teachers Arlene Brown, Chris Iannuzzi, Noah Meineke and Deniz Olcay; and Mara Rubin, Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts at LPS.
The ACL also still thanked Jan and George Press for sponsoring the reception as well as Haagen Dazs for offering to provide dessert for the reception and the LHS Honors String Ensemble for offering to play at the direction of Nancy Ciminnisi.
