This past Friday on March 7th, Albany Barn and the Office of the Albany County District Attorney, celebrated Albany City Schools young artists at our Third Annual Building Communities Youth Art Contest at our storefront gallery, Stage 1.
The contest showcased artwork created by students in the Office of the Albany County District Attorney’s Legal Lives program that teaches students how to avoid risky behaviors and make healthy life choices. There were over 150 submissions from seven schools including Arbor Hill Elementary, Pine Hills Elementary, North Albany, T.O.A.S.T, Sheridan Preparatory School, Giffen Elementary, and Delaware Community School. The theme of this year’s contest was “Anti-Bullying” and to promote tolerance and compassion in students’ communities.
