Student Artists and Writers Honored
by Faith Pang on Friday, April 25th, 2014
Recently, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) announced finalists for the Boston Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Founded in 1923, this competition has since awarded more than nine million students around the nation and granted over 25 million dollars in scholarships.
In the visual arts category, students can submit work in any medium, including painting, drawing, multimedia, filmmaking, animation, ceramics, and sculpture. This year’s winners from the visual arts department are Morgan O’Connell (I), Isabel Chun (I), and Sarah Lew (I). Morgan took home the gold key award for “South Beach #2,” and silver for a self portrait and “Northeast Sunset,” which was inspired by a beach near her Martha’s Vineyard home. Isabel won gold, silver and honorable mention in her paintings, drawings and entire art portfolio. Lew, on the other hand, was recognized nationally for her film, “Art Free World PSA.”
In the writing category, Emmie Atwood (I), Allison Choi (II), Yvonne Fu (I), Dianne Kim (II), and Pat McLaughlin (I) all won awards. For their work in poetry, Pat McLaughlin, Dianne Kim, and Emmie Atwood won the gold key award, and Allison Choi won the silver. In addition, Emmie Atwood was an honorable mention for her portfolio, and Yvonne took home the silver key for both her portfolio and flash fiction, as well as a gold key in Journalism.
Overall, these students did an amazing job. Although the March 8th award ceremony at Northeastern University and gold key award public exhibition from March 7th to March 28th has passed, be sure to watch out for Milton’s talented artists and writers next year!
