Art is defined as 'the various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance'. And all the faces of art were certainly on display when Yeshivah of Flatbush held it's annual Evening of the Arts, on Thursday, May 26th. This special night celebrated the many talented teachers in our Arts Department--and their many talented students.
The overflowing crowd who attended were treated to museum-quality visual art in galleries that stretched from the sub-basement to the lobby to the Beit Midrash. Paintings, sculptures, photography, graphic design and so much more adorned our building.
In addition to those displays, the talents of the performing arts divisions were on full display in a 90 minutes showcase of our best--both students and teachers; there were singers, actors, and musicians who performed with passion and amazing skill. Each act had the audience thinking 'it can't get better than this'---and then it did.
All in all, this was an evening that celebrates one of the most special aspects of the Yeshivah of Flatbush; our commitment to instilling a love for theater, music, and art in our students. ~Ms. Shelley Kaplowitz
