Center Moriches High School students are being recognized for their work honoring civil rights activist, author and poet Maya Angelou. Center Moriches was named the first-place winner of the East End Arts MLK Portrait Project, which encourages students to create individual panels that come together to create a portrait of a civil rights leader.
In addition to the first-place prize, three Center Moriches students were individually chosen as winners of a contest to work with an International Artist. Congratulations to Savannah Piccoli, Victoria Pendizick and Kai Fox. These students will work with Dan Shaw-Town, a painter and sculptor originally from England, in a series of workshops next month.
The MLK Portrait Project helps teach students how the power of the individual is amplified in the community. All portraits are up for auction to benefit the East End Arts Art Scholarship Fund.
