Congratulations to Iliya Mirochnik, 2006 YoungArts Winner in Visual Arts, whose mural recently was chosen for the outside wall of the Flomenhaft Gallery, located in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.
The competition, a collaboration of YoungArts and the Flomenhaft Gallery, was judged by Eleanor Heartney, independent art critic and contributing editor to Art in America magazine, and Eleanor Flomenhaft, owner and director of the Flomenhaft Gallery.
Iliya received a $500 award during a September 15 reception at the gallery, located at 547 W. 27th Street, New York.
YoungArts has been following the projects and career trajectories of all our alumni. So where do alumni go after their experience with YoungArts? One word: everywhere. From the Northeast to the Midwest and the South to the West Coast, the 2011 YoungArts alumni are attending a vast array of schools and universities. Find out where!
YoungArts marked another spectacular multi-day event last month as winners, teachers, alumni, friends and supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. for A Celebration of the 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholars.
Artworks were on full view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, launched by an opening on June 19. YoungArts winners in Writing and Cinematic Arts followed with live readings and screenings of their work. On Monday evening, June 20, the U.S. Presidential Scholars gave an unforgettable performance at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
For the occasion, YoungArts received a major boost from PBS, which “live streamed” the performance via the network’s Facebook page. The partnership came as a result of PBS’ commitment to increasing access to the arts. If you missed it, "A Salute to the 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholars" is now available on www.youngarts.org. Watch the video.
As the summer begins to wind down, we are just in the middle of our 2012 cycle of YoungArts, the signature national program that recognizes and supports America’s most talented 17-18 year olds in the visual, literary and performing arts.
Are you ready for the next phase in your artistic career? Would you like to increase your college scholarship opportunities? Would you like the chance to become a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts? Or do you know someone who does?
If the answer is yes, we invite you to review our application information section online for more details. Registrants must be a senior in high school during the 2011-2012 school year, or for those young artists not enrolled, you must be 17 or 18 years old on December 1.
Thank you for your continued support of YoungArts!
