Four VAC Students Have Artwork in Juried Show
Four students from the Visual Art Center (VAC) at Albert Einstein High School have artwork displayed in a juried art show at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture in Baltimore. The exhibition was done in partnership with the Maryland State Education Association. The art exhibition runs through March 1.
This year’s artistic theme was inspired by the artworks of African American artist Elizabeth Catlett, who is known for her sculptures and prints. Students were asked to create artwork reflecting social messages about race, feminism, maternal relationships or the African/Latino experience for everyday people.
Senior Daly Horton, a student at the VAC and at Northwood High School, won first place with Elijah Cummings, her painting of the civil rights activist and politician. As the first-place winner, she will receive $400.
Junior Alec Figura placed third for his piece, Lost Balance, which illustrates man’s rocky relationship with nature. He won a $100 prize.
Junior Julianne Adams’ artwork, Muneca Mexicana, is a tribute to her own mother, who came to the U.S. from Mexico.
Senior Sage Long’s piece, Clare’s Dream, depicts a portrait of a mother and child.
