On Sunday my 16 year old son Ross was awarded first place at the annual regional high school art exhibit (17 schools take part)at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, WI. Here is his piece, a clay box with red oxide stain. The inside of the box is inscribed, in small, neat letters, "How am I not myself?" attributed to one of his favorite films, I (Heart) Huckabees.
Ross kept his award a secret so it would be a surprise for me at the reception, which it was indeed. I am very proud of him, so please excuse this bit of art mom bragging!
