Students create recycled-trash artwork

The fifth annual Town of North Hempstead Recycled Artwork Contest challenged students to create art by upcycling items that would normally be discarded. This year, the town received 73 submissions, reflecting the work of 1,731 students at area schools. All artwork will remain on display at the Gold Coast Arts Center in Great Neck through Jan. 6. After that they'll be moved to Albany, where they'll be on display in the New York State Capitol building.
