Children’s Art Show
Cone Health MedCenter High Point hosted its inaugural Children’s Art Show featuring students from Colfax Elementary and Wesleyan Education Center in kindergarten through fifth grade.
The March 12 event encouraged young artists to depict their answer visually to an art prompt of "I’m Healthy When…"
"Sixty-five children submitted amazing works of art and attended the Exhibition Show at Cone Health MedCenter High Point," says Pam Francis, campus coordinator, who organized the contest.
The exceptional judging panel consisted of Bruce Shores, instructor of art at High Point University; Maxine Campbell, who is currently the curator at High Point University’s Sechrest Art Gallery and a Professor in the Interior Design Department; and Scott Raynor, who is the Associate Professor of Art and Chair, Art and Graphic Design at High Point University.
All art was judged based on the interpretation of the theme, creative merit, and artistic merit. First, second and third place winners in each grade level were selected; there were five honorable mentions.
Students and families attended the awards night at 6 p.m. and enjoyed light refreshments and toured the MedCenter with introductions from each practice in the building and department. Emergency Department Director Stacey Toben, RN, concluded the tour by giving each student a gift bag and an opportunity to win an Apple iPad. The students' drawings were on display in the MedCenter’s Glass Stairwell Tower for several weeks following the event.
