McKinley students honor Harlem Renaissance

Students at the McKinley Preparatory High School are paying tribute to artists of the Harlem Renaissance in a special exhibit this month. Now through February 27, student work is displayed in Sparring Partners Window Gallery at the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, 635 Huntington Ave. Pictured here is "Harlem Jazz," created by Damien Jones, a ninth grade student at McKinley Prep.

On February 27, the student artists will be featured in a special exhibit, along with an art auction and reception, at the college. At the event, students will be selling a music CD, featuring original positive rap songs. Proceeds from CD sales will benefit the restaurants that were destroyed in the recent Fenway neighborhood fire, located across the street from the school.
