~ Glorieanne Quiban - Farmingdale High School, Visual Arts Runner Up
"Since I was a young child, I had a strong passion for the arts.
I was often recognized for artistic ability which fueled my passion. Since elementary school, my art has received numerous awards and admittance into art shows. Currently I am developing my skills through rigorous art classes such as three years of Drawing & Painting as well as Advanced Placement Studio Art. Taking these classes is a joy because seeing my improvement is greater than any reward."

This piece was done on a Wacom tablet, hand drawn and painted using digital illustrator, SAI. Seeing and reading news about today's societal problems drove me to draw this piece. The message of this piece is that the movement for the rights of black lives was the same as it was in the 1960's; that history is repeating itself. The viewer's eye would focus on the mono toned figures, and realizing the style of their clothes, would assume their era was from the '60s. Linking these figures to today's events would create realization of how black people have fought for their lives for over generations; how important the lives of black people are.
