This Is Rutherford
Rutherford Schools Virtual Art Show
By Jennifer Ersalesi
This past weekend a link to a Virtual Art Show was provided to parents and students in the Rutherford School district and to the community. Since it was not possible for the schools to have their annual art shows, art teachers, Ms. Veronica Grillo and Ms. Stephanie Castellano, found an online program that allowed them to create a virtual art gallery. Grillo and Castellano spent many hours labeling, organizing, and placing the artwork throughout the virtual gallery. Mr. Steven Mett and Ms. Alexis Klubeck assisted with the process as well. Those that visit the virtual art gallery will be able to see over four hundred amazing pieces of art created by talented students in Union School's eighth-grade class and Rutherford High School students.

Students in Kindergarten through eighth grade were asked to proudly display their artwork in the windows of their homes throughout the weekend. Community members were asked to take some time to look for the artwork displayed by these talented young artists all over town.
Combining the use of virtual displays and real-life displays, the art teachers found a way to inspire and share positivity throughout the community.
