Eight students have their artwork on display in the same museum with such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and Claude Monet.

These students were selected for the Young Masters exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art. Out of 896 total submissions, only 65 were chosen, including eight from the high school. Their work will be displayed in the museum’s concourse gallery from Feb. 25 through April 16.

“Not many people can say their work is in the DMA and has ever been featured there, and to get that opportunity as a high school student, is incredible,” senior Hannah Lawson said.

Two students, seniors Carolyn Jurotich and Jessica Wu, have been selected for the second straight year. A recognition ceremony for this year’s selected artists will be held on March 29 at the DMA

“The Young Masters program is part of APS, which is AP Strategies, and they have a contest at the Dallas Museum of Art, and it is open to any schools that are involved in the grant,” art teacher Jeff Seidel said.

For teachers Seidel and Brice McCasland, it’s a big honor.  

“I love it,” McCasland said. “My students are more like my peers than they are my students, because we work together, and so for me it would be just as though one of my art friends would win an award, and it’s awesome, cause you just want to celebrate with them.”
