The photo shows this year’s winner Andy Liu, Harry Gee – the President of SCH, Richard Williams – instructor at the Glassell school, and Jerald Broussard – AACC Board Member and Sister Cities Chair.
Each year Houston-Perth SCA sponsors the Glassell School and they select a winner from the submittals. The theme for this year’s Sister Cities Young Artists Program was Building Global Communities.
The application required the artist to state what was his inspiration for the work. His work is entitled “Garden of Communities”. When asked why he chose this title, the young artist answered, “Gardens consist of various plants that must coexist with each other. Likewise, different communities must cooperate with one another in order to maintain peace in the world. I wanted to depict hands bringing together or linking the completely different communities to form a beautiful garden and shared space.”
This entry will go to the national competition which Houston-Perth SCA won last year.
