The 13th Annual Portfolio Exhibition
Students of the Portfolio and AP Studio Art classes
BHS Lower Library
School-day reception: Wednesday, May 22, 8:43 - 9:27 am (Period 7)
Evening reception: Wednesday, May 22, 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Our Portfolio and AP Studio Art students will be holding their reception for the 13th Annual Portfolio Exhibition this Wednesday, from 6:00 - 7:30 PM. That same morning they'll also be hosting a daytime reception for all faculty and for the classes of their own teachers.

The exhibiting students are:
Gati Aher
Lindsay Baxter
Nicole Benjamin
Kevin Buxton
Martello Cesar
Michela Giordano
Erin Kerr
Josh MacLeod
Owen Magnuson
Alex Markarian
Sophie Quinn
Sarah Schissler
Naaz Thotathil
Ryan Tortorici
Hailey Wood

The Portfolio Exhibition differs from Burlington High’s other annual Art Exhibition (in March) in that it's student-organized. Students in the advanced art classes self-select the work to be displayed, they organize their own personal exhibit spaces, and they'll be on hand to discuss the bodies of work they have developed over the past year or more. One long-term effort from each Portfolio student will be on display:  a Concentration, a series of artworks focused on a particular theme or method, with challenges and objectives set by the student. Visitors will be able to speak to the artists about their goals and their processes.

The Latino and African American Tenacity Challenge is an annual academic scholarship competition for teams of Latino and African-American students from urban and suburban high schools across Massachusetts

The students enjoyed this year's theme: The Social Significance of Hip Hop, Rap and Spoken Word. 

In preparation for the competition students heard from several guest speakers, including a spoken word artist and poet Reggie Gibson, and a university professor, Austin Ashe.

In addition to developing an argument about the influence of hip hop and spoken word, each team has developed a creative response to a work of literature, designed and created a mural, and studied and prepared for the math and science quiz bowl.
