Nanuet and Beyond held our 8th Annual Art Exhibition and Award Ceremony Friday evening, April 1, 2022 at the Palisades Center. The event is held in coordination with the Nanuet Schools and the Palisades Center. The Nanuet Strings Orchestra provided entertainment at the event. Pictures of the event are available on our Photo Gallery page.
This special event is held in partnership with the Nanuet School District’s Art Department. Approximately 100 works of art from students 1st grade thru 12 in the Nanuet Schools wereon display at 20 storefront windows throughout the Palisades Center from March 18 thru April 1. The theme for this year's contest was "Anything is Possible." The final 100 pieces were judged by local artists, sculptors, teachers and community citizens to determine the best works from the two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Finally a "Best in Show" was selected.
We wish to sincerely thank the Palisades Center for providing this great venue and opportunity for the students to display their art and draw attention to the Nanuet School District and the respective partnerships with Nanuet and Beyond as we work to achieve our mission of "enhancing the educational experience for all."

The event is always open to the public and Nanuet and Beyond suggested a $10 donation per family to help cover the costs associated with the event. Donations made to Nanuet and Beyond (www.nanuetandbeyond.org) go back to the community through programs like this and scholarships for graduating seniors from local high schools.
