Teen Art and Conversation
TAPPING INTO YOUR CREATIVE EDGE: A TEEN ART OPENING AND CONVERSATION
4:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday at The Collective Hall
Kicking off the Collective Snowmass and Aspen Business Connect Winter/Spring program, the free art opening will feature works by Scholastic Honorable Mention Award Winner Jake Bozza and four-time Scholastic Gold Key and American Vision Award Winner Axel Livingston. Both Aspen High School students.
The Aspen High School Visual Arts Department submitted 145 works of art to the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. There were 6,000 total entries for the state of Colorado including 2,200 students. From these submissions, Aspen won a total of 18 awards, including two students nominated for the National American Visions Award. There were only five students nominated in the state and two of them are from Aspen, Bozza and Livingston. The Gold Key Award winners and American Vision winner will go on to the National Scholastic competition, adjudicated on March 16. National Gold Award winners will have their work on display at Parsons – The New School. An award ceremony will be held at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June.
Come celebrate Bozza and Livingston's art while enjoying tunes with DJ Olivia Regen.
