LOCAL STUDENTS’ ART ON DISPLAY
The Essex National Heritage Area received a 2012 America’s Best Idea Grant from the National Park Foundation. In partnership with The House of the Seven Gables in Salem, MA, a summer program titled “Making the Caribbean Connection” was funded.
A group of young students newly arrived from the Dominican Republic met at The House of the Seven Gables to learn, in Spanish, about their heritage and the historical connections between Salem and the Caribbean.
Their amazing final art project is now being displayed at the Salem Visitor Center on New Liberty St, across from the Peabody Essex Museum.
Make your own “connection” with our local youths by viewing their display.
