Roosevelt Middle students tell ‘The Story of Me’ through art

Belinda Mora
Five students from Mrs. Fouseki’s photography course at Roosevelt Middle School are among the 200 students whose art is currently on display in the "Young Art 2013: The Story of Me" exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art. The exhibit runs through May 26.

The museum received nearly 350 submissions this year for the exhibit. The art work is competitively judged and not every piece is accepted. All submissions must be tied to the theme each year. Student artwork can tell "The Story of Me" through artistic representations depicting their culture, traditions, family, friends, memories, experiences, or physical appearance through portraiture, narrative and masks.

Roosevelt students featured include seventh graders Destiny Sarmiento and Nicole Pinon, and eighth graders Holly Thomas, Lewis Poor and Belinda Mora.
