Several Gulliver students have been recognized for original artworks entered in the 2017 Scholastic Art Awards competition. The exhibition, reception and awards ceremony took place at Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood on Sunday, January 29, 2017.

Carla Guillamon '17 (painting) and Amanda Vera '18 (drawing) each received the highest distinction at the regional level and were recognized as Gold Key Award winners. These artists were presented with a gold key pin and certificate, and their works will be forwarded to New York City for national judging. Samantha Keepax '18 (drawing), Maria Sanchez '18 (sculpture) and Carlos Uribe '17 (architecture) were recognized as Silver Key Award winners, and were presented with a silver key pin and certificate.

The Scholastic Art Awards, open to students in grades 7-12, are the largest and longest-running assessment and recognition programs for the visual arts in the United States. Entry materials reach 12 million students in 99 percent of America's schools and attract more than 250,000 entries each year. Historically, Miami-Dade County winners compete on the national level each year. In 2016, Miami-Dade County students received 31 national awards.

The Scholastic Art Awards exhibition features artwork by Gulliver students from the Academy and Preparatory campuses, and will be on display at Rubell Family Collection (95 NW 29 St., Miami FL, 33127) through February 12, 2017.
