LEXINGTON, S.C. — Six high school art students in Lexington County School District One won prizes and awards in the seventh annual Art of Healing, an art competition for Lexington County high school students that Lexington Medical Center sponsors in partnership with the Columbia Museum of Art.
Lexington County high school art teachers selected the students’ artwork that was entered in the competition, with all artwork required to incorporate elements related to healing or health. Students created drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures that depicted the students’ interpretation of healing or health.
Students received their prizes and awards on Monday, February 1, during a reception at the Columbia Museum of Art. Many of the entries included students’ inspirational stories about relatives who experienced health challenges.
The artwork of students who won prizes and awards in the competition will be displayed at the Columbia Museum of Art until March 4. The artwork will be displayed at Lexington Medical Center’s North Tower Atrium from March 7, until April 4.
