Students receive recognition at Harper Art Show

by Megan Jones, Editor-in-Chief

Harper Community College hosted its annual art show on Nov. 30 where District 211, 214 and Barrington High School all participate by entering 2-D and 3-D artwork to be judged by faculty.

Jess Musto, senior, received first, second and third place in the WHS 3-D artwork category.

“I was caught off guard and wasn’t expecting to win because only two students get the award,” Musto said. “This is my first year of taking art classes, so I didn’t think my chances were favorable.”

Musto is the first student from WHS to win this award. She also received the Harper faculty art award.

“This is a huge achievement for the art department and for Wheeling High School,” Kent Dyer, art teacher, said.

Musto will receive a free three-credit hour class at Harper College.

“Jess entered, and she actually has a very distinguished role in the show this year. Jess’s piece was chosen as the best for the 3-D, so she beat Districts 211, 214 and Barrington, so it’s a big deal,” Rebeccah Silver, art teacher, said.

Out of the 40 students who participated, WHS received first, second and third place for both 2-D and 3-D, as well as six honorable mentions. Alexis Counts, junior, won first place in 2-D. and Klaudia Leniart, senior, won second place in 2-D.

“It’s a chance for students and faculty to not just see the Harper campus, but to have the opportunity to really share student work with each other. and I think it’s a phenomenal opportunity for our students,” Ms. Silver said.
