Exhibition Interrupted: The Class of 2020 Art Students at Abington Senior High School
Like all students across the globe, the usual rites of passage were either adjusted or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For art students graduating from Abington Senior High School in 2020, this meant their senior exhibition was cancelled. Now a year later, Woodmere Art Museum is thrilled to present Exhibition Interrupted, the culmination of three years of exceptionally hard work and artistic growth.
Exhibition Interrupted demonstrates the students' expressive abilities in a wide range of media and concepts. Despite the shift to remote learning, the art works display the students' continued efforts to work with an exciting and infectious energy, and their ability to communicate, share ideas, and think critically about their work.
This exhibition reflects the inspiration of art educators, Nicole Caracciolo, David Ferro, and Katharine Shields in cultivating their students' creativity. They are very proud of their students’ accomplishments and excited for them to have this long overdue exhibition.
Abington Senior High School was founded in 1956 and today is a three-year comprehensive high school located approximately five miles north of Philadelphia in a suburban residential area. The Senior High School has an enrollment of 1,881 students who come from a variety of community settings and socioeconomic levels.
