IHS Graduate receives art exhibit honors

Ithaca High School’s Leah Henseler was recently selected by the College Board for inclusion in the 2021 Advanced Art (AP) Art and Design Digital Exhibit. This year’s exhibit features high-quality student artworks exploring creativity, innovation in artmaking and thinking, critical thinking through inquiry, process and practice, and excellence in skill. Two of Leah’s sculptures, one of which is pictured below, were selected for inclusion.

“Leah’s sculpture explores the dynamic between humans and nature, woodgrain textures and ocean waves, the form, function, and beauty of everyday objects,” IHS Fine Arts Chair Carol Spence said. “She is an artistic force of nature, Leah Henseler.”

Leah, who graduated from IHS in May, is headed to the University of Miami next year, where she will double major in Fine Art and Marine Ecology.
