Congratulations SOHO Graduates!

Last Thursday was the graduation ceremony for the ten girls in this year’s SOHO class, an opportunity for them to remember the year and share what they did.

There was an exhibit in the gallery of some of the artwork the students completed during the mentorship program, as well as a video (below) of the year’s highlights — making food, volunteering, ice skating, life skills and art lessons, and the room renovations that capped off everything.

The students were in charge of the gathering, with each grad taking a turn at the microphone to talk about their memories and accomplishments from the year — the food they made and ate, Family Night, the room renovations. A crowd of family, friends, teachers, SOHO supporters and donors came to celebrate with them. Congrats to the newest SOHO graduates!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
