An Invitation to Students!  Celebrating Immigrants in America Project at the American Labor Museum

The Museum invites students grades 3-12 to share their creative talent and unique ideas by creating an art project that celebrates immigrants in America.

Registered students are welcome to create visual and performing art projects such as essays, poems, drawings, paintings, photographs, video and more.  Registration forms and projects must be submitted to the Museum by Wednesday, May 24th, 2017.

Teachers of participating students are invited to schedule field trips to the Museum or arrange for members of the Museum's Speakers' Bureau to visit classrooms and present labor studies talks as a means of inspiration for the students.  Outside of school, students are invited to visit and tour the Museum for help with ideas.

Angelica M. Santomauro, Ed.D., Director of the Museum, announced the project, saying, "This program enables young people to express themselves creatively and celebrate immigrants in America.  Participating students will always remember the experience."

All participating students, their families, friends and teachers are invited to an unveiling reception at the Museum on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 at 12:30pm.  The unveiling reception takes place prior to the annual General Membership Meeting & Silk Walk Reception, which begins on June 4th at 1pm.

The Celebrating Immigrants in America Project is made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Passaic County Education Associations (PCEA).
