2014 Citywide High School Scholarship Winners Exhibition
May 22, 2014
The exhibition of the 2014 City Wide High School Scholarship winners will be on view from May 22 through June 8, 2014 at Industry City, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Presented alongside the City Wide High School Scholarship Winners Art Exhibition will be the inaugural exhibition of art from Sunset Park High School.
Since 1999, the Dedalus Foundation has awarded scholarships to graduating seniors from New York City public high schools who plan to attend college and have shown excellence in fine art or art history.
The Dedalus Foundation is pleased to present this exhibition of artwork and art history projects by the winners of the 2014 High School Scholarship competition. Submissions in each category were judged by a panel composed of representatives from the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Art and Design, the School Art League, and the New York City Department of Education.
This year’s exhibition of the studio art scholarship winners includes paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures that display a broad range of styles, and which highlight the rich creative talent among New York high school students. The studio art scholarship winners are Paulina Beron, Erie Brewster, Christopher Coryat, Sanne van Der Veen, Claire Kleinman, Farudh Majid, and Anna Niklova.
Visitors may also view video presentations from the art history scholarship winners, who have demonstrated an impressive grasp of art historical methodologies and critical approaches, while exploring subjects that range from Jean-Michel Basquiat to the politically minded Chinese art group the Stars. The art history scholarship winners are Chiara Butler, Maayan Kline-Salamon, Hannah Sklar, Lydia Saylor, and Katherine Zhao.
We are also thrilled to be presenting an exhibition of artworks made by students from the Sunset Park High School organized by the Center for Family Life “Life Lines” Art Troupe. This exhibition will be featured in an adjacent gallery and will be open May 22nd through May 25th.
