Seven OPRF art students were recognized at the inaugural Illinois High School Regional Art Exhibition Art Show, held last Sunday at the Zhou Art Center in Chicago. Sixty-five schools participated in the art show and competition. Each school selected five works for display. In addition, senior art students could apply for a Senior Portfolio Scholarship by submitting their portfolio of work online. Several students took home awards:
