Seven New Trier art students featured in Illinois High School Art Exhibition

Chicago -Seven New Trier High School students have work featured in the Illinois High School Art Exhibition 2015, which highlights the best art from 100 Chicagoland public and private schools.

Congratulations to Amrita Krishnan who won best in show - drawing at the exhibition. New Trier's other representatives are: Paige Eckensberger - Design; Katie Hochschild - Photography; Mia Campolo - Three-Dimensional; Emma Killeen - Painting; and Ting Chen and Kelly Zabors - Time Arts.

Five hundred high school art works are hanging at the Zhou B Art Center, 1029 W. 35 th Street, Chicago. This location allows for public viewing and community building, bringing together high school artists to allow them to share and collaborate with their peers. The show, which runs through March 7, was created to reinforce importance of art in education and the power of art in student's lives.

Schools came together for an opening reception on Sunday, March 1 to celebrate the diversity of city and suburban high school artists, unifying the arts through a common goal, a common experience, and a common perspective.
