Student Art Festival 2021 PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE
The Guild Hall Student Art Festival (SAF) is a beloved tradition that encourages and showcases the artistic achievement and imagination of students, Kindergarten to Grade 12, on the South Fork of Long Island.
As a celebration of both Guild Hall’s 90th Anniversary, and the centennial of the Village of East Hampton, this year’s festival, Student Art Festival 2021: PAST-PRESENT-FUTURE, looks to both our shared past and an imagined future. Through the practice of art and design, ranging from imagery of natural growth and metamorphosis to Futurism and Science-Fiction, students across the East-End have collectively produced an exhibit that reflects our past, acknowledges and celebrates our present, and imagines a changed and hopeful future.
This festival begins with a free public opening of the exhibition, a series of weekend family workshops, and concludes with an awards ceremony for high school students.
