Students Make a Splash in Art Exhibition
Green Chimneys Students Combine Advocacy and Creativity to Inspire Action
Green Chimneys students have artwork on view in White Plains as part of an exhibition entitled, “Fish Tales Around Westchester.” The exhibition, co-organized by ArtsWestchester and Rare Animals Really Endangered (R.A.R.E.), marries art and science to create a memorable exhibition that will engage visitors and inspire action.
The exhibition’s theme is a great fit for Green Chimneys’ Shark Finatics!, a special interest and advocacy group comprised of students at the Green Chimneys School in Brewster. The Finatics share a passion for sharks and raise awareness of key issues, such as pollution and shark finning, which endanger the species. In this particular project, the Finactics tell the story of a fictitious shark named Shirowani through a series of illustrations about her life in the Long Island Sound. They also worked as a team to created a sculpture of this special sand tiger shark.
Plan to meet Shirowani in person by attending the "Fish Tales Around Westchester" exhibition before August 11;
