The virtual art exhibit features 2-D and 3-D artwork by 124 Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate students from 37 high schools across Long Island.

“This is an opportunity for what may be the first of many times these promising young art students will show their artwork in a professional gallery setting, albeit virtual for 2021,”  the Art League of Long Island’s website said.
