Jamie Wullenweber’s piece is #14, “The Primaries” (and is displayed incorrectly in the photograph, it should be verticle) and Taylor Helms’ is #19, “Cherry Blossom”.

Thank you for your help in getting the student’s art displayed in Washington!  Last year OHLSD was represented in our Nation’s Capitol Building by Cameron Suter’s work.  Let’s see if we can go 2 years in a row!
