Right in there with lockers, classrooms and teenagers cruising down corridors, a hidden gem of an art museum makes its home at New Rochelle High School.
The only state-chartered museum in a school in New York State, the Museum of Arts & Culture exhibits art created by students and outside artists alike.
The exhibit featured in these photos showcases the creations of graduating senior CJ Senerchia. The culmination of CJ’s artistic efforts throughout high school, the exhibit ends with a closing reception from 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday.
“This was years in the making,” says fine arts teacher Marc Schneider.
The museum is a joint project of the High School and the non-profit New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. For more information, visit the museum’s website.
