CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – Artwork from students at the Cheektowaga Central School District will be on display at Cheektowaga Town Hall and Senior Center during the months of February, March and April.
The work is on display as a result of an initiative Supervisor Diane Benczkowski started in 2014. The “Students Making Art” or “S.M.ART” allows students from Cheektowaga schools to display their artwork at Town Hall and the Senior Center for all residents to see.

“I wanted to do something that would involve the many talented students and children of our Town, as well as something that would encourage families to visit Cheektowaga Town Hall to see what is happening in our community,” said Cheektowaga Supervisor Diane Benczkowski. “I know the residents of our community will feel such great pride, as I do, when they see the beautiful work created by the children.”
In 2014, Benczkowski served as Chair of the Arts and Culture Committee and met with Cheektowaga school districts to determine a new and innovative approach to recognize the achievements of local students while also familiarizing them with their Town government.
Teachers of around 70 students at the Cheektowaga Central Schools chose what work was to be displayed at Town Hall.
Cheektowaga Town Hall is located at 3301 Broadway and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Senior Center is located at 3349 Broadway and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
