Students in grades 3-12 were invited by the Museum to share their creative talent and unique ideas by creating an art project that celebrates immigrants in America.
Teachers of participating students arranged for members of the Museum's Speaker's Bureau to visit the school and a present labor studies talk as a means of inspiration for the students.
Angelica M. Santomauro, Ed.D., Director of the Museum, announced the project in March 2017, saying, "This program enables young people to express themselves creatively and celebrate immigrants in America. Participating students will always remember the experience."
Students who participated received Certificates of Merit at a reception held at the Museum on Sunday, June 4th, 2017. The exhibit of their projects may be viewed at the Museum through August 26th, 2017.
The Celebrating Immigrants in America Project is made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Passaic Count Education Associations (PCEA).
