organizers (Hampton Photo Arts +Tonic) of this juried exhibition and art contest asked youth
artists to submit work in any medium for a show at Ashawagh Hall in Springs. Submissions
were grouped by grade/age divisions and work was entered into two categories: Photography/Digital Art/Mixed (graphic) Media
or Drawing/Painting/Illustration/Collage/Sculpture. Prizes were awarded for Best in Show and Best
in Division/Category. The Tonic Artspace built a cave out of cardboard boxes.

The most notorious case of graffiti in Hamptons history was one that spawned
a local legend.
40 years ago, ''Virgil Is the Frog Boy'' appeared on a trestle spanning the Sag Harbor Turnpike. Though weathered, the words
were visible for many years after. Lore has it an East Hampton teenager was so named by his friends, but his identity and
the circumstances under which he earned the nickname remain a secret.
Some years later, ''Virgil Is Still the Frog Boy'' appeared on the same trestle.
Speculation about the mystery flared anew, but that case has never been solved.
