Dwyer High School student Daniel Gallo and recent Wellington High School graduate Felicia Yan will have their works included in “ART.WRITE.NOW.DC,” a special exhibition of national award-winning work from the 2012 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Both students won national medals in the 2012 Scholastic Awards, Gallo for his work, titled Cityscape, and Yan for her work, titled Layers.
The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and the Department of Education are hosting the yearlong exhibition and are organizing a special day of celebratory events, including a morning workshop and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Gallo, his mother and his teacher Gail Marshall, and Yan and her teacher Barbara Brubaker, attended the event Friday, Oct. 12 in Washington, D.C.
Yan is currently attending the University of Pennsylvania. She was co-valedictorian with her twin sister, Crystal. The Advanced Placement Studio Art 2D class for which she took her award-winning photo was her first studio art class.
