Artists Capture Nine Art Awards

Last week Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin received early notification that its student artists have won nine of the 63 awards in the Cleveland Clinic’s eXpressions Art Program. According to Clinic officials, schools throughout the Clinic’s extensive market area submitted more than 1,000 entries this year, which is a new record.

NDCL’s award-winning artists, whose works will be displayed at the Cleveland Muserum of Art beginning with an awards gala on Jan. 30, include: sophomore Alyssa Daddario and junior Carlee Duggan, blue ribbon awards; sophomores Joseph Canter and Vincent Petro and seniors Jack Hyland and Allison Perpar, red ribbon awards; and seniors Alexandra Graham and Allison Perpar and freshman Madeline Spicer, white ribbon awards.

eXpressions is an interdisciplinary program that utilizes art to engage high school students in the world of scientific research. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students produce artistic interpretations of research conducted by Cleveland Clinic summer interns. Last year six NDCL students won spots in the Clinic’s prestigious internship program.

“NDCL is consistently one of the top schools in terms of the number of Clinic internships awarded. We’ve had 17 interns in the past three years,” said Principal Joseph A. Waler. “Now, in a year with more competition than ever, our student artists have won more eXpressions awards than any other high school.”

In addition to being exhibited at the Cleveland Museum of Art, the award-winning artworks will be featured in the eXpressions program’s print and online art catalogs. Artists will receive gift cards, and their teachers, Mrs. Mary Ann Sedivy, Miss Susan Ancheta and Mr. Pete Nezovich, will be awarded educational grants from the Clinic.
