Whitney Houston used to believe that children are the future, and what did it get her? Nevertheless, Male High School’s art club, led by teachers Elizabeth Berry and Carrie Neumayer, has put together a show of future art stars in which the pixel-pushers present 16 personal takes on some everyday heroes — y’know, teachers, nurses, firefighters, alt-weekly journalists … OK, maybe not the latter, but there is one for Molly the Labrador, a dog who saved her family from a fire. The collection will live in the Kids’ Room in Gilda’s Club, hosts of the opening reception. It’s a perfect location, as it is itself filled with everyday heroes; not those glamorous stars you see in Hollywood like Nicole Richie or Kate Gosselin, just hard-working folks trying to make this world a better place. —Peter Berkowitz
