Art.Write.Now., a traveling exhibition of the works of winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, will make its debut in Pasadena next month. Local students Lachlan Turczan, 17 (Los Angeles County High School for the Arts); Isabel Bennett, 16 (Culver City High School); Juan Correa, 17 (Loyola Academy); and Benjamin Sprung-Keyser, 16 (The Harvard Westlake School) will be honored.
The organization has been giving awards and scholarships to high schoolers for artistic and literary achievement since 1923. And they have a pretty good track record of spotting talent. Past winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards include John Baldessari, Sylvia Plath, John Lithgow, Truman Capote, Robert Redford, and Andy Warhol.
The show is free and opens May 7 at the Lineage Dance Performing Arts Center.
