Congratulations to Fox Lopez (Visual Arts 2022) for receiving a 2022 National Scholastic Art & Writing Competition Silver Medal! Fox received a National Silver Medal for his print, “Strike a Pose.”

“I was trying something new,” said Lopez. “I have never made a print before but I had a clear vision and executed it to the best of my abilities! So just keep creating and you’ll make something you love.”

Cameron Browne, Visual Arts Instructor, said, “Fox has really grown into his own as an artist and storyteller and I’m pleased to see him earn a National Silver Medal! Fox has always been building an artistic practice that uses multiple materials and it is great to see him recognized with his layered piece, “Strike a Pose”. Congratulations!”
