Valley Stream Central High School student Rico Ford is among an elite group of talented artists who had their work selected for the 2018 Long Island’s Best Young Artist Exhibit at the Heckscher Museum. Rico’s colored pencil piece, “Pair of Kings,” was on display until April 15. 

Rico won two awards at the showcase: the “People’s Choice Award,” based on votes from visitors to the museum over the last month, and a fourth-place honor. His work was selected out of more than 380 submissions. At Central, Rico is involved in art with guidance from teacher Mario Bakalov.
