Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “These state-level opportunities bring well-deserved recognition to our fine arts program.”
Calvert County Public Schools will be represented in 2016-2017 by the following students:
Jacob Shanks, Calvert Country School;
Carly McCarthy, Huntingtown Elementary School;
Ryan Black, Mutual Elementary School;
Lillian Barrick, Plum Point Elementary School;
Conell Brandner, Calvert Middle School;
Zari Archer, Plum Point Middle School;
Erin Brown, Calvert High School; and
Thessa Vu, Northern High School.
Some artworks will be displayed at juried art shows held biannually by First Lady Yumi Hogan, an active supporter of arts education, at a gallery she established in the House of Delegates Office Building. Others will showcased at the Louis L. Goldstein Treasury Building.
The exhibits are supported by the Maryland State Arts Council.
