Whispers into the Void

A Photography Exhibition
by Jupiter Community High School Students

On view April 1 – April 16, 2017 at Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Art, Tequesta, Florida 

The Norton Museum of Art is pleased to be in year three of a school partnership program with Jupiter Community High School, working with students completing the AICE (Advanced International Certificate of Education) A Level Art and Design curriculum.  

This year’s exhibition, Whispers into the Void, features artworks by 16 students.  Along with their growing familiarity with the Museum’s permanent collection, students employed close observation and critical thinking skills during a guided tour of the Norton’s Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers that featured photographs, videos, and installation works by contemporary artists. The experience included a conversation with Tim B. Wride, the Norton’s William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography.

The students created individual works of art concerning the impact of modern entertainment and social phenomenon on their worlds.  They employed photographic and post-photographic techniques; embroidery, digital manipulation, and video installation to document concepts of space, distance, and the human form to create depictions of introspection, decay, intimacy, and vulnerability. 

The Norton Museum of Art would like to thank the Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Art for its generosity in hosting this student exhibition.  The Norton is pleased to work with other cultural organizations to provide Jupiter Community High School students with a valued component of the school’s fine arts program.
