I will have work on exhibit in June at the World Financial Center as part of the Scholastic art and Writing Awards Exhibition. I won a Scholastic award when I was in high school, and this year work by several past winners will be on exhibit, in addition to the exhibition of select teen winners. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is administered by the nonprofit Alliance for Young Artists & Writers and recognizes student achievement in the visual arts and creative writing in the United States.

"From June 9-25, the National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Teen Exhibition will celebrate young talent with a three-part exhibition that features a broad selection of works by this year's Award winners, six site-specific works created by distinguished artists who won the Award when they were in high school, and a timeline and display of artifacts honoring the Awards' 87-year legacy."
