Student Arts Festival
Now in its 23rd year, the Student Arts Festival celebrates the young artists of our region and salutes their devoted art instructors, school administrators, and families who nurture their creative pursuits. Each year, schools from Bridgehampton to Montauk participate in our two inspiring student exhibitions. The museum features more than 3,500 works of student art that cover the gallery walls floor to ceiling salon-style. Part I of the exhibition features the works of students in pre-school, elementary and middle schools, and Part II features the work of our talented high school students.
Museum Hours: Fridays and Saturdays 11am-5pm; Sundays 12-5pm; Mondays 11am-5pm with special afterschool hours Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays 3:30-5pm. Open during February School Recess Feb. 16-20 from 11am-5pm.
