Two DECA scholars submitted Self-Portraiture artwork inspired by their External and Internal Struggles and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for a chance to be displayed at the Social Justice Art Showcase at the National Center for Civil & Human Rights. 10th graders, Samiya Sharif and Jonathan Bonilla were accepted, have their works displayed, and will be celebrated tonight, May 10th from 6:30 to 8:30 at the center. Admission is free @https://www.cicilhumanrights.org/event/awoken-19 and they are providing free food and drinks aw well.
The judges deliberated and selected Samiya Sharif as one of the top five pieces in her category of Paint & Collage. She has been offered the opportunity to speak briefly during the program to describe her work and its connection to human rights & social justice issues presented in her artwork entitled, The Bad and The Worse. Come out for a fun art-filled evening and to prop up our talented young social justice advocates.
