Senior Iyanla Williams’s artwork, One Girl Many Faces, will be on display at the U.S. Department of Education as part of Art.Write.Now.DC, a special exhibition of National Medalist work from the 2016 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.

Williams’s piece will be one of only 65 works to be on display in the lobby of the U.S. Department of Education’s main building, which is across the street from the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 16, starting at 9:00 am. Students and teachers are invited to the ceremony and festivities later that day, including museum tours and workshop opportunities, provided they RSVP through art teacher Lisa Dibble.

Williams won a Gold Scholastic Art Award earlier this year for her piece in the category of Ceramics and Glass.
