Kyra Steck '18 Receives Impressive AP Studio Art Honor
Posted 09/07/2017 04:32PM

Kyra Steck ’18 recently had one of her photo pieces selected for the 2017-2018 AP Studio Art Exhibit. Her photo was selected from all of the AP Studio Art portfolios submitted in spring 2017. The exhibit is produced each year by the AP Program to honor and celebrate the work of outstanding AP Studio Art students. This is an extremely impressive recognition as Kyra was one of 30 students whose work was chosen from the 60,000 students who submitted art portfolios this year. Her work will be touring the country.

Each piece was selected because it represents the extremely high level of rigor, commitment, and accomplishment AP Studio Art students can achieve. The exhibit is shown at different locations around the United States throughout the year. Kyra's piece will also be displayed online at the AP Central website.

Kyra is the second Govs student whose work was chosen for an AP Art Exhibit. Audrey Hemlepp '15 also had one of her AP photos chosen for the 2014 AP Art Exhibit (Audrey took AP Photo as a junior). Academy Photography teacher David Oxton said, "The fact that so few student pieces of artwork get chosen for this exhibit is further proof that our art students are producing artwork at the very highest level of quality."
