On the afternoon of June 18, LongHouse Reserve recognized the artistic talents of students across the East End at the LongHouse Student Annual VI, with a number of awards going to Ross Upper School students. LongHouse is an East Hampton art museum and sculpture garden that augments its educational functions by organizing the yearly competition for artwork inspired by visits to the installations. This year saw enthusiastic participation, with Ross’s geometry classes in particular organizing their long-term individual student projects around the competition.
The students were well rewarded for their efforts, and their artwork can be seen all summer at East End branches of Suffolk County National Bank (a sponsor of the competition). Listed below are the honors bestowed upon Ross students.
