The Nazzaro Center, with help from Public Action for the Arts and Education (PAAE) recently completed its 11th Annual Art Contest, a program that involved over 40 boys and girls ages 6-12 working on art projects over the course of six months, culminating with an awards ceremony at the Nazzaro Center.

“We are so proud to be a beneficiary of PAAE and their commitment to the Arts,” said Josie Lepore. “Without their continued support and involvement, we wouldn’t be able to bring the arts to as many children as we do.”
