“Let's Think”
Jahmal Brown
Red Ribbon Award

Artist Statement:
I used a collage resist technique for my artwork. I wanted to show more than just the negative side of things. I wanted to show that just because a child may be infected with a disease doesn’t mean they become an outcast to the rest of society. I became aware of the fact that dogs are sometimes used for research, so I just felt I should put the dogs on my work to show that not only are some humans infected but also animals.

“Fetus in Woman”
Andrew Scott
Honorable Mention Award

Artist Statement:
My art is a simple picture of a woman who’s pregnant. The picture shows the simple beauty of a fetus. I did the art to show how without the blood and inside stuff, a woman that’s pregnant is simply very beautiful. There are no deep defining features, just a woman and her fetus.

“Angelic Scan”
Anthony Bencivenni
