The saying goes that, “A
picture is worth a thousand words.” But sometimes, having an artist explain
their work themselves can be just as special. The Word and Image Middle Schools
Exhibition at the Morean Arts Center will display the artwork of twelve J.Hop
students inspired by the theme “On My Block”.
The annual exhibit
picks multimedia submissions that combine a piece of art and a personal
narrative. The students whose work will be on display are Jada Calhoun, Elise
Tuttle, Lagaia Christopher, Alina Phetsadasack, Trent Barber, Zakhar Sennikov,
Savannah Nasworthy, Aimee Olsen, Madyson Mauk, Tobi Tinnaro, Sophia Weaver, and
The exhibition takes place
March 3 through April 9 at the Morean Arts Center. An awards ceremony is going
to be held Saturday, March 25 from 3-4:30 PM.
