SJC Council for the Arts Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

PATCHOGUE, NY – SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 – In honor of Hispanic heritage month, the St. Joseph’s College Council for the Arts will present, “Projecting Art,” in the board room gallery in O’Connor Hall on the College’s Long Island Campus from September 8 – October 9.

“Projecting Art,” named for both the group and their collection of paintings by Latino artists with roots in Central and South America, has made history in contemporary arts.

The reception for this exhibit will take place on September 30 at 6 p.m. and will be immediately followed by a Hispanic dance festival at 7:30 p.m. The dance festival will be presented by Sol y Somba, a pair of Spanish dancers who have mastered a variety of styles, including tango, salsa and flamenco. Sol y Sombra will be joined by several dancers to put on a show of the most popular and exciting dances from Hispanic countries.

These events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Exhibit hours are Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Call 631.687.5100 for weekday viewing times. For more information about “Projecting Art” and the Hispanic dance festival, please call the Council at 631.687.1434.
