Windward recognizes and congratulates Andreas Rothbart ’22 and Corinne Leong ’20, who were recently recognized as 2021 YoungArts winners for Photography and Poetry, respectively. Andreas was also named as a finalist, YoungArts’ highest honor, and has been invited to attend the National YoungArts Week.
The National YoungArts Foundation identifies the most accomplished young artists in the visual, literary and performing arts, and provides them with creative and professional development opportunities throughout their careers. Andreas and Corinne are now fellow YoungArts alums with the likes of: Daniel Arsham, Terence Blanchard, Camille A. Brown, Viola Davis, Allegra Goodman, Josh Groban, Judith Hill, Tarell Alvin McCraney, Andrew Rannells, Desmond Richardson, Sam Lipsyte, Billy Porter, Timothée Chalamet, Hunter Schafer, and more.
We would also like to extend our appreciation to the Arts faculty that have supported these students in their journey. This has been a very challenging year, to say the least, yet the arts continue to thrive and arts educators continue to keep students inspired and engaged.
