Essex County YAM

Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. welcomed 100 students from throughout Essex County to the Essex County Hall of Records for the Art Educators of New Jersey student art exhibit on Monday, March 22nd. This is the sixth consecutive year DiVincenzo has partnered with the Art Educators of New Jersey to present the student artists exhibit.

During the months of February and March, the first floor lobby of the Hall of Records was transformed into a student art gallery. Employees and visitors to the County building were treated to the colorful and lifelike paintings and drawings.

"Essex County has some very creative and talented student artists at all age levels from elementary to high school. The original artwork that is included in our exhibit is truly inspiring," DiVincenzo said. "I am proud to partner with the Art Educators of New Jersey for the sixth consecutive year to present this beautiful exhibit. This is an opportunity to promote our students' positive achievements and enables the general public to see the talent in our schools throughout the County," he added.

This year's show featured original works of art created by 100 students who range in age from elementary school to high school level. The students came from 34 different Essex County schools.
