Thirty-two art students from Corriher-Lipe Middle School attended a reception in their honor Oct. 17 at Waterworks Visual Arts Center, which hosted an exhibit of their work created for the recent “La Fiesta de Rowan.”
The students created posters based on the theme “Music is Our Passion” after exploring the influence of Cuban and African rhythms on music in America starting in the 1930s.
With their choice of music as inspiration, students created a visual interpretation of what they hear. Fifty-one posters were submitted and were judged by members of the Human Relations Council and the Latino Coalition.
Corriher-Lipe students’ art won first place at all three grade levels: Grade 6, Mary Taylor; Grade 7, Sarah Loder; and Grade 8, Jessica Flores.
Flores also won the People’s Choice Award.
Lynn Haynes is the Corrhier-Lipe art teacher.
