The Redmond Proficiency Academy announced that freshman Lily Yeatman won first place in the Maryhill Museum of Art Juried Exhibition sponsored by the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center.
High school art students from throughout Washington and Oregon were asked to showcase their art. All of the judging was blind with titles only. Yeatman’s was awarded for her three dimensional work, entitled “Rabbit.”
“I didn't think I was going to place, so finding out I won first place was a pleasant surprise,” said Yeatman. “Just knowing my art is on display in an actual museum means the world to me.”
Yeatman’s art will be on display in the new Mary and Bruce Stevenson Wing of Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale, WA from June 23rd through July 30th.
“Lily is a tremendously talented artist, and I am so happy that the Maryhill Museum has recognized her work,” said Fine Arts teacher Ethan Stelzer. “Many artists dream of having their work displayed alongside the greats, but few actually get to see it happen during their lives, much less before even graduating from high school.”
