Division Avenue High School sophomore Vicky Zhang, along with juniors Grace Connors and Emily Fuchs, were selected for their artwork in the Heckscher Museum of Art's "Long Island's Best: Young Artist" competition. Their art was among approximately 75 others selected out of more than 470 entrants. All three students earned honorable mention awards. Both Grace and Emily were also chosen for the cover of the events booklet and the yearly book produced to show all the artwork displayed at the competition this year.
Leading up to the competition, the students attended a field trip to the museum. They observed current exhibitions on display and returned home to create a piece on their own that was inspired by the exhibit. The students also had to provide a short explanation of the meaning behind their art. Congratulations to all three students!
