The work will be displayed through Jan. 29 at the Judith Rae Solomon Gallery and on the art department fourth floor in Bliss Hall.

The Scholastic Art Awards ceremony will be noon Jan. 25 in Bliss Hall’s Ford Theater. The ceremony will feature awards given to students who received Gold and Silver Key honors as well as honorable mention awards.

The 688 individual and 27 portfolio regional entries reflect each participating school’s outstanding student work. From these entries, a panel of judges selects works to receive Honorable Mention, Silver and Gold keys and five nominations for the prestigious American Visions Awards.
