Earning yet another US Presidential Scholar in the Arts this year, New World School of the Arts once again brings the coveted distinction home. Adriana de la Torre, from the visual arts division at NWSA, submitted two YoungArts portfolios in two disciplines and was a Visual Arts Finalist. Adriana will have the opportunity to invite a professor from New World School of the Arts to join her as she travels to Washington D.C., June 18-20, 2017, to receive her award on behalf of the President of the United States. She will have her artwork displayed in the Hall of Nations in an exhibition created by this year’s recognized visual artists and writers during the impressive ceremony. “I am just grateful to be a part of this amazing recognition, and owe it all to the incredible support and guidance I've received from my teachers at New World School of the Arts,” said Adriana.
