SUMMER TIME WELL SPENT
“Summer Time Well Spent” is a virtual arts exhibition focusing on the themes of the summer season.
The 3D virtual gallery is best explored from a desktop computer or laptop.
This Time Well Spent show is a special project curated by our summer intern Sa’Kari Merritt, a student at Wyandanch Memorial High School, as part of “UJIMA” the Town of Babylon’s 5-week summer internship and mentorship program.
More about UJIMA: The mission of the UJIMA program is to provide minority high school students, residing in the Town of Babylon, a unique opportunity to participate in local government through hands-on training and mentorship, thereby fostering their interest in community development and providing an introduction to the myriad of occupations needed to effectively promote community/ neighborhood interests.
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.
Thank you for your interest!
Submissions are $10 for 3 entries.
