LONGHOUSE RESERVE STUDENT ANNUAL XIV

 

 

 

Welcome to LongHouse Student Annual XIV, our first on-line show. If this is your first “Annual”, you are in for a treat. But before we begin, here’s a little backstory. Fourteen years ago, our Education Committee began creating strong alliances with local East End schools. We reached out to community members who volunteered to work with children becoming our first of many wonderful LongHouse docents. School tours began and since then thousands of school children have been inspired by the blending of art and design in our gardens.

Welcome to LongHouse Student Annual XIV, our first on-line show. If this is your first “Annual”, you are in for a treat. But before we begin, here’s a little backstory. Fourteen years ago, our Education Committee began creating strong alliances with local East End schools. We reached out to community members who volunteered to work with children becoming our first of many wonderful LongHouse docents. School tours began and since then thousands of school children have been inspired by the blending of art and design in our gardens.

Our founder, Jack Lenor Larsen, once said, “We learn faster and deeper from the experience of being in the space" and we couldn’t agree more.  Our enquiry-based tours are free of charge thanks due to the generosity of donors. These tours encourage students, K-12, to observe, connect, and see possibilities. The thoughts and discussions that followed brought that “aha” moment.  Why not create a vehicle for students to express themselves after being inspired by time in our gardens? Why not give all an opportunity to “think outside the box”, to create without boundaries, to share their vision - their unique voice? And so began our first Student Annual  with twenty three entries from four schools.

As our Annual grew, it became a much anticipated and respected event receiving several hundred submissions from all over LI, NYC and elsewhere but most coming from our own East End. We’ve had entries as diverse as robotics, trapeze artistry, performance art, animation, film shorts to fashion design, book arts, ceramics, digital illustration, product design, poetry, painting and photography…and this is the short list. All entries are reviewed by a juried panel of educators, artists and the Co-President of our LH Board of Trustees. After much discussion, winners are chosen and placed. Our hope is always to give all students a platform to shine.  To that end we not only encourage entries from school who have visited but students who visit on Open Days with their families. 

This year we present to you our Student Annual online. Due to the nature of the school year it’s abbreviated in scope. We are indebted to our teachers whether in school and/or online and teachers/parents/grandparents who were home schooling or teaching in a learning pod.  You amazed us by balancing emotional needs alongside academics while creating a bit of routine to your children’s daily life. We hope that by offering the Annual as schools began to reopen, we were able to offer both a bit of normalcy and a creative outlet. The best for us was welcoming you back to LH, masks and all and hearing happy excited voices fill our gardens.  

In June of 2022 we will be back to an outdoor ceremony, art show and reception. But whether in person or online, our students’ shine and we couldn’t be prouder of their resiliency. A big thank you to all able to visit and who shared their very best work with family, community and friends through our LongHouse Student Annual XIV. Bravo!

Now as the saying goes, “On with the show!”
