Teen Arts 2006 Touring Exhibit
Last Stop – Children’s Specialized Hospital

Mountainside, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce that the Children’s Specialized Hospital, located at 150 New Providence Road in Mountainside, is hosting the Teen Arts 2006 Touring Exhibit through March 9.

“We are delighted to see so many students taking part in the Teen Arts Program,” said Freeholder Chairwoman Bette Jane Kowalski. “The artwork is exceptional and having the exhibit travel allows the entire community to view it.”

The exhibit consists of 57 pieces of art selected from over 600 visual art works shown at the 2006 Union County Teen Arts Festival held last March at Union County College.
