SJEH Hosts Student Art Show
St. John’s Episcopal Hospital South Shore will host an opening for a very special art exhibit entitled "Wishes and Secrets of American Youth" created by children from PS 43 and Beach 131st Street who have been affected by September 11 and the crash of Flight 587. The opening will take place on Thursday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the main lobby of St. John’s Episcopal Hospital South Shore, which is located at 327 Beach 27th Street in Far Rockaway, Queens.
Over the past year, St. John’s Episcopal Hospital’s Project Liberty and The Greater New York Hospital Fund Disaster Relief Program have been providing free, confidential counseling to individuals, families and groups on the Rockaway Peninsula who were affected by the tragedies of September 11 and the crash of Flight 587. One of the populations most affected by these events has been children. Through art work in groups created and facilitated by the Hospital’s staff, children from PS 43 and Beach 131st Street have created the art of "Wishes and Secrets," which expresses deep-set fears never before revealed and their most sincere hopes for themselves, their families and the world around them.
The children’s art will be on exhibit throughout the week of March 24 to March 28.
