The exhibition Home Sick, currently on view at the Trolley Barn through April 1, is a collaboration between multiple Poughkeepsie arts organizations and is the pilot program of The Art Effect’s Youth Curatorial Program. The project came about through conversations between Bart Thurber, The Anne Hendricks Bass Director of The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center and Nicole Fenichel-Hewitt, Executive Director of the Art Effect, who share a vision to support the arts in Poughkeepsie. They invited their staff to brainstorm collaborative ways to strengthen The Art Effect’s programming and engage the community with high-caliber arts experiences, while also creating rich educational opportunities. The discussion led to the creation of a new program that would involve a professional curator to guide youth in organizing an exhibition.
