Alverno Heights Academy Celebrates Art Students at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
On Sunday, January 21 five Alverno Heights Academy students had their artwork blessed and unveiled at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels as a part of the Robert Graham Memorial Student Art Exhibit. The exhibit features artwork from students at different high schools throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Members of the community are invited to view the artwork at the Cathedral, which will be on display throughout Lent.
The exhibit is named in honor of the noted sculptor Robert Graham, who designed the Cathedral’s Great Bronze Doors. Steven Graham, son of the late sculptor who died in 2008, said, “I think it’s fantastic that the Cathedral is promoting student artwork. It’s something that would make my father very happy.”
Seniors Clarice Huang and Melody Wu and juniors Mariah Arcibal, Lillian Pentecost, and Sarah Wolfe were all chosen to participate in the exhibit as members of Alverno’s Art Program. Each of the students was asked to create a piece of art which reflected her own spirituality. The art will be on display at the Cathedral until April.
“The thoughtfulness, talent, and passion that these young women put into creating their art for this exhibit is a testament to their commitment and love of the arts. Alverno Heights Academy is incredibly proud of these young women for the beautiful works they have created,” said Julia V. Fanara, Head of School. “Clarice, Melody, Mariah, Lillian, and Sarah are not only talented artists but incredible scholars whose academic excellence and artistic endeavors contribute greatly to our community. Alverno is thrilled to have their art on display in the Cathedral and thanks the Cathedral Fine Arts Committee for this opportunity.”
