Student Artwork On Display

Four students from Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center in Albertson will have their artwork of digital images with interpretive text displayed at the 2013 Embracing Our Differences outdoor art exhibition celebrating diversity from Oct. 14-27 at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood. Their work will be enlarged into huge panels for the viewing. 

 

Delvin’s work, which consists of hands and colors—including a prosthesis—reaching towards the Earth from space, suggests society’s struggle to recognize and accept people’s differences. Kiara’s piece, a contemplative girl with negative words appearing across her face, demonstrates their hurtfulness while Ron’s image, picturing the Earth divided into distinct sections inside the pupil of an eye, commentates on the world’s inability to live in harmony.

 

Robert, who created a filmstrip timeline of important U.S. legislation from 1830-present, illustrates how past laws of exclusion—like the Indian Removal Act and Jim Crow laws—have more recently given way to policies of inclusion such as the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990.      

 

“I felt that this contest would be perfect for my students…it would give them an opportunity to use their Photoshop skills to express themselves,” said Linda Reiser, media technology teacher at the center. “Our students face many challenges…and therefore able to produce work that articulated their experiences in a powerful way.”

 

Judged by professional artists and curators, exhibition criteria included artistic excellence, how well the work translated into enlarged outdoor panels and how the designs addressed exhibit themes of living in a diverse community, impact of prejudice and hatred on human dignity, varied people and cultures in the world.

Sports

The Mineola Mustangs ended last year’s playoff run in a 34-6 drubbing from the West Hempstead Rams. Mineola was poised for another post season push in 2014 and it showed last week, with a 15-14 victory over the Rams in homecoming weekend.

 

With a slow start in the first half, Mineola (4-1) put their first points on the board in the second quarter with a field goal by senior Robert Lang.  After a touchdown by the Rams (2-3), they headed into halftime 7-3.

FC Mineola Stumbles Against Hota

Despite two goals from Liam Going, the BU11 Mineola FC squad fell to a relentless and talented Hota Panthers team at Soccer Park in Plainview on Sept. 6.  Hota jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Going connected on his first tally, launching a 30-yard free kick that dropped over the Hota keeper. The Mineola striker’s second goal brought his team to within two goals of their opponent, but Hota scored several more goals in the second half in a strong performance.  Mineola’s Nicholas Buffolino and Luke Sommese gave solid efforts for Mineola in the season-opener for both teams.
