Artwork created by Bayport-Blue Point High School senior Bob Mischo and junior Baylee Browning-Atkinson was selected for showcase in this year’s Long Island’s Best Art Exhibit at the Heckscher Museum. One of the most prestigious student shows on Long Island, the exhibit only accepts approximately 80 pieces of work each year. Besides the honor of being selected to exhibit in this juried student art show, several scholarships and awards are given.

Prior to making their submissions, the students were asked to look at artwork in the museum during the school year (in person or online) and use one of the museum’s works as inspiration for a piece. In addition to their art submission, each student wrote a brief essay about the inspirational work as it related to their work. The inspirational work and essay were mounted and placed next to the student work in the gallery.
