The Syosset Central School District announced that the Huntington Arts Council has selected the works of four Syosset High School students for display in its Main Street Gallery this month.

“Nightmare on Main Street” is the Huntington Arts Council’s annual exhibition for student artists in grades 6-12. This year, the Spooky Prompt invited students to submit work inspired by a doctor’s description during the bubonic plague. The plague doctor has become a symbol of Earth’s last moments. The long beak of the protective mask was filled with herbs and spices believed to filter out “evil spirits”. Halloween is also a once-a-year opportunity to dress up or be a stranger, and celebrate the darker parts of life.

Sixteen students from Syosset submitted works to the competition and four were selected to have their work exhibited in the physical space of the gallery. The show starts this Friday, October 21 and ends on November 12e at the Huntington Arts Council’s Main Street Gallery. In addition to the physical exhibition, each student enrolled this year will be featured in an online gallery published on the Huntington Arts Council website.
