Student Artwork Displayed at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Sidewalk Art Show

winning artwork Several works of art created by Whitesboro students were displayed at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Annual Sidewalk Art Show from July 2-7.

The majority of students’ works in the High School Division of the art show display were from Whitesboro High School students. Pieces were dropped off at the beginning of June and then chosen to be displayed in the show. 

At the award ceremony on July 7, winners were announced. More than 1,900 people voted this year for the People’s Choice Awards. For the second year in a row, a colored pencil piece by Whitesboro student Olivia Anderson was voted the People's Choice Award. Her drawing of “Moose” was the winner.

Three Whitesboro students also received Juror’s Choice Awards. Julie Benhoff received one for her oil painting titled "Royal Bloom." Also procuring this award was Emma Gregory's acrylic painting, "Queen." "A Girl and Her Dog," an acrylic painting by Madison Huggins, was the third winner.

High school teacher Greg Cost received a Juror's Choice Award for his Digital Photography piece titled, " Dinosaur #1."

The Whitesboro Central School District is proud of the award winners and everyone that submitted pieces to this prestigious event. Thank you to all members of the Art Department for being a positive influence on students, and thank you to Mr. Cost and Miss Nadeau for the efforts and hours they put in to ensure that Whitesboro students were successful in this annual show.
