Belmont Hill Artists Recognized at Annual Art Awards Chapel

Belmont Hill artists were recently recognized at the annual Art Awards Chapel.  
Belmont Hill artists were recently recognized at the annual Art Awards Chapel.  Steven Kaplan, Arts Department Chair, led the chapel and explained that this semester’s artwork concluded with a recent show in Landau Gallery. He noted that an outside judge came to survey the work, rating it in a variety of categories. Mr. Kaplan also explained that the opinion of any one judge is always subjective and that a different judge may yield different results. “So the message to all of you,” he said, “is that while the following students will be honored, this community appreciates all the effort and work in the show.”
Below is a list of the winners. You can view all the art in the accompanying video.
