Polo Park Photoshop Art Chosen For Norton Gala

Some of the student artwork that will be on display.

Photoshop students from Polo Park Middle School will be featured at the gala opening of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. They will be exhibiting the work they made in homage to the artwork of Kehinde Wiley.

The students approached the project in celebration of their family heritage and their own personal achievements. There will be written statements from the student artists explaining their thought process when making their art. The following students will have their work exhibited: Bryanna Ariza, Daniela Pardo, Emily Avila, Gavin Emerick, Estephany Tojil, Logan Showalter, Isabella Zitelli, Kaden Balfour and Abby Maken.

The Norton Museum recently went through a huge renovation and will be reopening on Feb. 9, and the whole community is invited to take part in the celebration. The community is invited to see the students’ art at the 2 p.m. event. Also of note, the museum will be open every Friday and Saturday free of charge, with many art classes and events scheduled.
