Door County high school students will be spotlighted for the month of May as part of the “44th Annual Salon of Door County High School Art” at the Miller Art Museum. 112 students submitted 161 works of art for the exhibit that will be displayed at the museum until May 29th. Elizabeth Shoshany Anderson, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, says the display showcases the growth and ability of area students.
One student from each high school was given a $100 cash prize as an “Award of Excellence”, with a $50 prize also going to each school’s honorable mention. The museum is free to attend and is inside the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay.
$100 Awards of Excellence went to Gracie Richards (Gibraltar High School), Violet Suhrer (Sturgeon Bay High School), Korrina Ervin (Washington Island High School), Nicholas Stoekel (Sevastopol High School), and Emma Jeanquart (Southern Door High School). Honorable Mention Awards of $50 each were presented to Sarah Kifer (Gibraltar High School), Claire Tellstrom (Sturgeon Bay High School), Alissabeth Mohn (Washington Island High School), Bailey Henrickson (Sevastopol High School), and Benjamin Walters (Southern Door High School).
