Oct. 4, 2017 - National College Board Advanced Placement Art Exhibit


Two Plano ISD visual art students works were selected for the National College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Studio Art Exhibition. This is a highly selective exhibit with only 30 pieces out of 60,000 portfolios in the nation selected to participate. The exhibition will travel around the country to a variety of different galleries. Annette Hui and Caitlin Savage were honored to have their work chosen.

Annette Hui, Plano West Senior High School

Photo of Annette Hui Annette Hui's piece was selected from her AP drawing portfolio.  Annette, who graduated in spring 2017 from Plano West, is currently attending the University of Texas at Austin and studying Illustration. Annette’s selected work, titled Yellow Bandaid, was from her Drawing concentration completed in the spring of 2017.  "My concentration was on Band-Aids, and how they had become a visual symbol and brand." In her artist's statement she has this to say about her work “Sometimes we need to fix the tiniest things about ourselves whether it's just improving our personality or healing who we are. Band-aids enlighten this concept by finding our inner differences and quirky character.”
