Olivia Lunger, Bethlehem –  Student Artist Scholarship Award
This $2,500 award goes to a high school junior or senior planning to pursue a career in arts administration. Lunger uses artwork as a mode of expression to bring awareness to contemporary issues. In one of her works, she used a drawing of hands to make a statement about Tourette’s syndrome. In a more recent piece, she questioned gender binarism. Her artwork has been displayed in the school art gallery during the annual art shows at Liberty High School and was the scholastic winner of the 2017 ArtPop competition, as well as featured in Teen Ink Magazine. Lunger recently graduated from Liberty High School and will attend Rhode Island School of Design in Fall 2018.
