TMLA Art at the Met
Congratulations to TMLA Senior Rebecca Jurgens, whose work “Me and My Mask” now hangs at the New York Metropolitan Museum in recognition of her award of a Gold Key in the 2021 Scholastic Art Awards of New York City. In this competition, Senior Mahalia Carbonell was awarded 3 Gold Keys, a Silver Key, and an Honorable Mention for her entries. Sabina Yuricic also won a Gold Key, and an Honorable Mention for her entries.
Other students who have received Regional Recognition in this year’s New York City Art Awards are Silver Key winners Seniors Nelcys Guzman and Eliana Cortez. Honorable Mention was won for the entries of Seniors Maria Teresa Furtado, Stacey Zheng, Emily Grimaldi and Junior Justine Lao.
Now in its 98th year, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for young artists and writers in grades 7–12. Jurors look for works that exemplify the Awards’ core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. The Awards serve as a launch pad for furthering students’ future success by providing them with access to scholarship programs and workshops, as well as the ability to have their work published and displayed in regional and national exhibitions.
We are so proud of all our students who submitted pieces to this competition. Congratulations to all our artists and their teachers, Mrs. Jenny Durkin and Ms. Janine Ramadan of TMLA Art Department.
