Lexington County Students Express the Art of Healing

March 10, 2017

 

West Columbia, S.C. – Nine Lexington County high school students have received prizes and awards in the 8th annual “Art of Healing,” a juried art competition for Lexington County high school students sponsored by Lexington Medical Center in partnership with the Columbia Museum of Art. The students created drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures that each depicted their interpretation of healing. The Columbia Museum of Art will display the artwork until March 12. Lexington Medical Center will then display the artwork in the hospital’s North Tower Atrium until April 13.

 

“Lexington Medical Center is proud to partner with the Columbia Museum of Art to give students the opportunity to express their interpretation of healing through art,” said Barbara Willm, vice president of Development and Community Relations. “The creativity and thought put into each entry and their interpretations of the art of healing truly inspire us. Displaying their work at the Columbia Museum of Art is a wonderful way for our community to see how these students look at the world.”

     

Art teachers from Lexington County high schools each chose one student’s artwork to enter in the competition. All artwork had to incorporate healing or health. Many of the students’ entries shared inspirational personal stories of family members’ health challenges and recovery.

 

Award-wining fine artist Michael Story judged the entries and selected the winners.
