This year, in addition to artwork on display from art educators in Aurora Public Schools, there will also be a charity art sale to benefit a scholarship fund in honor of Gateway student A.J. Boik.  A.J. was killed during the Aurora theater tragedy and was a devoted student to the arts.  “We dedicate this show to A.J. ,” comments Debbie Nolasco art teacher at Boston K-8.  “Our community lost both a student and an artist that day.”  Proceeds from a dedicated part of the show will benefit his scholarship fund.
