MEA Artists on Exhibit at MMFA

Two Macon East high school artists Lauren Grace McIntosh and Haley Wren, recently participated in an exhibit at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The ARTWORKS Corridor theme was “Do Good, Make Art.”  The exhibit connected with the Views of the South: Photographs From The Do Good Fund which was inspired by the Empty Bowls Movement. In an effort to raise awareness of hunger in our area, local students were asked to create their interpretation of hunger and the importance of community service. There were many entries, and after the jurying process by museum curators, educators, and artists, 49 works of art were chosen from homeschool, private instruction, and 15 private schools. These included two students from Mrs. Tiffany Ala’s class at Macon East Academy. Lauren Grace McIntosh’s mixed media, The Language of Hope, boasts an array of watercolor along with inked words of hunger in different languages from around the world. Haley Wren’s piece, Save Us, is an acrylic depicting a man in front of a wall holding a sign.
