Showcasing the arts is a vital way for students to express their creativity and to share their talents with their peers. On Friday, February 24, the Fusion Club hosted the Art in the Atrium event, allowing students to do just that.

Currently under the leadership of Ms. Sok, the Fusion Club is a program with the goal of supporting and providing extra funds for the fine arts. As illustrated by Vice-President McKenzie Schuyler (senior), the Fusion Club is “dedicated to doing art and using that type of art [to] combine art and community service.”

Admission into the Art in the Atrium event cost $8 per person, and half of the proceeds were donated to Hope through Care, a homeless shelter in Clifton, New Jersey.

“We chose Hope through Care because we believe that art can serve as a form of therapy for individuals who have experienced hardship, and also as an educational tool to promote creative expression in young children and adults,” Jenny Yan, Co-President of the Fusion Club, explained.

Attendees also had the option to buy raffle tickets, which they could then use to vote on their favorite piece of artwork. At the end of the night, the artist of the piece with the most votes was then awarded tickets to an art museum of their chosen art style.

The three winners were: Susan Wong (senior) with her sculpture, “Lucky Fortune,” Bridget Olexson (freshman) with her painting, and Amy Holz (senior) with her photograph “No More Milkshakes!”

“I started doing ceramics in sophomore year… and each year after that I did another ceramics class… It’s really calming to make art,” winner Susan Wong described.

Congratulations to all who participated, and a special congratulation to Susan Wong, Bridget Olexson, and Amy Holz!
