Palisades Center will host the 7th Annual Nanuet School District Art Department Exhibition in partnership with Nanuet and Beyond and the Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce. Twenty of Palisades Center’s businesses will collectively display 100 works of art from Nanuet students ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade. This year’s art pieces were inspired by the theme, “Nanuet Together”.
The works of art will be on display from March 19-April 2 in the following store front windows:
Color Me Mine
Good Game Lounge
Lollipop Toy Shop
Macy’s (Level 1 & 2)
Space Adventure Glow in the Dark Mini Golf
Parents, students, and the community are encouraged to create their own “Nanuet Together” art walk using the online map and list of stores that will be available on www.palisadescenter.com, www.nanuetandbeyond.org, and www.nanuetchamber.com. A virtual compilation of the artwork will also be created following the exhibition and available on the respective websites and Facebook pages.
“Community outreach has been an important initiative of Palisades Center and the Center businesses participating in this event,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center. “It is an honor to host Nanuet School District’s Art and Culture Event this year. Our guests will love viewing the works of art from these extremely talented kids!”
“As a school district that values and prioritizes the celebration of the arts, we are thrilled to offer our community the 7th Annual Nanuet School District Art and Cultural Exhibition at Palisades Center,” said Dr. Kevin R. McCahill, Superintendent of the Nanuet Union Free School District. “Our Mission asks that we always try and connect our classroom experiences with the greater community around us. Our ability to do this in such meaningful ways has improved significantly due to our special relationships with Nanuet & Beyond, The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce, and The Town of Clarkstown. ‘Nanuet Together’ is the perfect theme for this exciting event!”
“Nanuet & Beyond is a non-profit organization created to support and provide educational opportunities for our youth that enhance existing program experiences both within and outside the classroom,” said George Mollo, President of Nanuet and Beyond. “One of our organization’s goals is to promote the advancement of art in our classrooms and community through programs like The Nanuet School District’s Art and Culture Event. We thank Palisades Center and the companies showcasing the art this year. Any donations received because of this event will go back to the community through donations and scholarships.”
“The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce is grateful to the Palisades Center’s businesses for hosting the Art and Culture Event this year,” said Susan Farese, President of The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce. “We encourage the community to view the artwork located throughout Palisades Center and donate what they can to Nanuet and Beyond for future student programs and scholarships.”
A kick-off event will take place on Saturday, March 20 at 12:00pm at Macy’s on Level One.
