Taking The Stage Art Exhibition

CMCS is currently co-hosting a gallery showing in the Rotunda Art Gallery at the Mt. Vernon Public Library with the Mt. Vernon Arts Council. 

This unique exhibition features the artwork of a number of children in our care with over twenty five original pieces on display until July 15, 2015. 

The debut of the exhibition took place on Monday, June 15, and was attended by CMCS staff including President & CEO Beth Finnerty, Sister Marie Hess and Sister Jeanne Shary along with some of artists.  The exhibition debut was also hosted by CMCS’s Director of Child Care, Cynthia Burgos, who is an accomplished artist herself and has worked with all the youth creating their pieces.  The event included a visit with the Mayor of Mt. Vernon, Mayor Ernest Davis, who emphasized to the youth that their futures can be very bright and that each of them possesses tremendous potential. 

The pieces were originally presented as part of the CMCS Taking the Stage Talent Show held at the Westchester Dinner Theatre in November.

We encourage all to visit the Mt. Vernon Public Library to view the inspirational artwork and talents of those in our care.
