About the Art Expo
La Salle Academy is pleased to present our 33rd Annual Art Expo here on this new website. We are displaying art work from schools throughout New York City's five boroughs. Students, from first to twelfth grade, exhibit their imaginative and creative designs that they have worked on this year. Thank you to all the students and art teachers who contributed and professional artists who judged the work. We could not do this without you. Enjoy the show!
