Four students in the Central High School District were chosen for the prestigious Heckscher Museum's Long Island's Best exhibition held annually in Huntington.

Danielle Berkowitz, Dylan Friedman and Minami Rodger from Kennedy High School, and Josh Gilmore from Mepham High School each have artwork featured in the show.

Long Island’s Best: Young Artists at The Heckscher Museum is the only juried exhibition on Long Island that offers high school students the opportunity to show their work in a museum.

“Students were challenged to create works of art inspired by a piece they viewed at the museum,” explained Cheryl Fontana, the district’s director of fine & performing arts. “The museum chose 91 students this year out of 553 submissions from high schools around Long Island.”

The show is running from April 29-June 4. Beginning May 6, one can explore the entire exhibition online at
