Harborfields High School’s National Art Honor Society worked with eight other participating Long Island NAHS chapters to create this year’s 6×6 collaborative installation in partnership with the Heckscher Museum of Art.
The 6×6 project was founded in 2014 by two National Art Honor Society advisers – Jeanie Ritter of Harborfields High School and Roe Elder of Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK High School – with the goal for National Art Honor Society students to connect, collaborate and create. The Heckscher Museum of Art became an essential partner, providing artistic enrichment for students, the inspiration for artwork and a location to exhibit tshe 6×6 projects that students make each year.
In an effort to share this exhibition with all the participating schools, it “travels” when not on display at the Heckscher Museum, and a portion was displayed in the Harborfields High School lobby’s art gallery during November.
