Kent School uses art exhibitions to display the talent and creativity of the student body. The first exhibition of this year was organized by Ms. Lynch, and the theme was climate change. Displayed in the walk- way gallery between the dining hall and Mattison Auditorium, the beautiful works of art are a clear representation of students’ talents and enthusiasm. The space had been beautifully arranged and fosters a creative atmosphere of visual storytelling.

To put this exhibition together, around forty students and faculty members devoted their time to create, organize, and submit their artwork. Most of the pieces were individually made, while some were collaborations. Together, the pieces spanned a great variety of art forms including photography, watercolor, sketches, sculptures, and architecture models. Focuses varied from the depiction of nature to surrealism.

“Our goal is to raise aware- ness among the student body to climate change, and to en- courage more people to care about the nature,” said Andy Xu ’21, one of the student assistant curators who designed the arrangement of this exhibition.

One painting, by Sally Yu ’20, is a fascinating depiction of the statue of liberty submerged by water, with a donut positioned in the chaos. This piece was inspired by the speculations regarding the future trends of rising sea levels intermixed with consumerism in the United States. Be sure to take a peek at the wonderful creations of Kent School artists as they touch upon pressing environmental issues that affect the global population.
