Two Glen Cove High School art classes enjoyed a visit to the historic Coles House on Oct. 13.

The student-artists viewed indoor street art creations made by numerous well-known artists, including work by Glen Cove High School art teachers and students that transformed the interiors into a lively and compelling art museum.

The one period field trip across town was organized by art teachers Stephen Lombardo and Vicki Gordon on the invitation of Glen Cove's local business owner Joe LaPadula. Students toured the many rooms inside the three-floor space and had an opportunity to not only view art and installations, but also listened as Mr. LaPadula explained the critical difference between art inside a sanctioned space and defacing public property.

Of the 40 students attending, all seemed happy about this fun and interesting space existing in their own town.
