This week, CHAH Art students visited the exhibit “On Adornment” and Pen + Brush Gallery on 23rd Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

According to Pen + Brush’s website, the exhibit “features emerging and mid-career artists who are unpacking the concept of adornment, particularly in the context of female imaging and agency, and redefining it in contemporary ways.”

Thank you, Pen + Brush, for hosting this fascinating exhibit!

AP Art Students, "Broken Windows" Policing, and Equity for All

IMG_8810.jpg

This past week, CHAH AP Art students attended a pop-up art installation that addressed the theory of “broken windows” policing. The “broken windows” theory posits that visible signs of crime, like graffiti and vandalism, create more serious crimes. The theory has been questioned and challenged by many communities, citing improper use of police force on minor infractions.

CHAH Art students debated the pros and cons of the theory, while viewing beautiful art installations.

Later in the week, several of those same art students had their work featured at the annual CLOTH Gala, a fundraising event put on by our partner organization, Community League of the Heights, on the topic of “Equity for All”.

The CHAH Boys Basketball team spent all of Saturday at the College of Staten Island Team Camp. The team took the Staten Island Ferry where they saw some of New York's most famous sites-the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Once at the camp, the team played three games against teams from New Jersey, Brooklyn and Staten Island. It was a great experience and we are thankful to the College of Staten Island for including us.
