Education Commissioner’s Office Art Contest

Erin Scalora submitted a piece of artwork to the State Commissioner of Education’s “Commissioner’s Office Art Contest.” Erin’s work was chosen from over 70 submissions, as a finalist.


All finalists will have their work hung in the Department of Education Commissioner’s suite. At a later date, Erin will be invited to a gallery showing, that will be held for all 20 finalists.

Brent Catan was one of the 70 students who submitted a work, and while it wasn’t one of the finalists, he was given the opportunity to put his piece on display as part of a 4-6 month rotating gallery on the walls of the State Department Building in Hartford.
