Art created by the Stuart Hall Class of 2020, under the direction of S/H art teacher, Mrs. Kirsten Anderson, is currently on display at Ochsner Medical Center, marking the first time that Ochsner is displaying student artwork in their main display case. The exhibit, which features radial origami paper sculptures made by each student, along with one collaborative piece of art featuring Stuart Hall colors, will be on display on the main campus of Ochsner Medical Center (1514 Jefferson Highway) through October 15.
Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations.
Radial symmetry is a type of formal balance in which objects radiate around a central point and has more than one line of symmetry.
In developing the artworks displayed, the Class of 2020 were introduced to these three basic origami folds. Later, they were challenged to create a radial design using only these three folds and a color scheme of choice.
Thank you to Ms. Lorene Holbrook, grandmother of Gardner Ebrahim '19 and Adley Ebrahim '20, for coordinating the entire exhibit.
