Actress Kathy Bates, Artist Philip Pearlstein

and Author Joyce Maynard

Celebrate Creative Teens at the

2008 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

 

Nation’s Best Young Artists and Writers Honored

at Carnegie Hall Ceremony

 

 

 

 

The next Andy Warhol, Truman Capote or Joyce Carol Oates may have crossed the stage at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 5th, as the nation’s most talented young writers and artists were honored at The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  The national program, celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, offers early recognition of creative teenagers and scholarship opportunities for graduating high school seniors.  This year more than 500 creative teens traveled to New York City where their achievements were celebrated by family, industry leaders, educators and patrons, along with Academy Award-winning actress Kathy Bates, singer-songwriter Mike Doughty and Award alums artist Philip Pearlstein (1941 and 1942) and author Joyce Maynard (1966-1971).

 

As part of the celebration, select artwork and writing were on public display at three highly respected New York City galleries: White Columns, Reeves Contemporary and NYArts Broadway Gallery.  The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the nonprofit organization that administers The Awards, also offered national recipients a special workshop series in New York City, including cultural and career seminars at professional institutions, such as the Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, the New York Public Library, Atlantic Theater Company, The New Museum and BlipTV.

 

“For 85 years, The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have encouraged countless young writers and artists,” said Virginia McEnerney, Executive Director of the Alliance. “This year, we are celebrating the many directions a creative life can take by honoring our illustrious alumni alongside our national award winners.”

 

Since Scholastic founded the program in 1923, The Awards have recognized such distinguished past recipients as Richard Avedon, Mel Bochner, Truman Capote, Robert Indiana, John Lithgow, Bernard Malamud, Joyce Maynard, Sue Miller, Joyce Carol Oates, Tom Otterness, Sylvia Plath, Zac Posen, Robert Redford, Andy Warhol and Sherley Anne Williams, who all received awards when they were in high school.

 

Each year, the Alliance receives tens of thousands of works of art and writing, submitted through regional affiliate programs across the nation for consideration in 25 categories of art and writing.  The submissions are evaluated locally and nationally by a panel of jurors comprised of renowned artists, authors, educators and arts professionals.
