MORRISTOWN, NJ — Livingston High School students Shirley Zhu and William Taylor will have their work displayed at the Morris Museum in Morristown as part of Fresh Perspectives, a juried high school exhibition.
Zhu and Taylor were among 50 high school students from across New Jersey whose work was selected for the exhibit, which opens April 7.
Fresh Perspectives began in 1989 to give artistically accomplished high school students a professionally organized museum exhibition experience and to recognize art teachers for their encouragement and effective teaching.
Zhu, a student of Tori Gioioso’s, is exhibiting a piece from Creative Photo II. Taylor, taught by Arlene Brown, is exhibiting a photograph from AP photography.
The high school artists’ works featured in the exhibit are in a variety of mediums, including computer-based graphic design, found objects, video animation as well as the more traditional painting and sculpture.
The LHS students will receive certificates of participation at the exhibit’s opening reception on April 7. The public is invited to view the exhibition through June 4 at the Morris Museum, located at 6 Normandy Heights Road.
