Former Garza Student selected to participate in "Austin Pictures"
Former Garza High School student, Hunter Cohen, is one of eleven distinguished high school visual artists citywide to have been selected to participate in Austin Pictures, a multimedia event taking place in the state-of-the-art 2,200-seat Austin City Limits Live Theater.
Hunter’s painting will be a prominent part of the show. He and his art will be featured in a brief film giving an up-close look at the artists’ process. The musical centerpiece of Austin Pictures is the great masterwork Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky. The piece describes, in music, gallery goers walking through an exhibit of ten highly evocative images. For this project, each student is painting her own version of one of these images. Hunter has been selected to paint A Rich Man and a Poor Man.
