Every year since the mid-90s, the International Baccalaureate Art Show has displayed the very best of the visual artistic talent at the ASM.
A GUIDEPOST Report
Last Friday, 28 March 2014, the ASM Community came together for the opening of the annual International Baccalaureate Art Exhibit in the school’s recently inaugurated Da Vinci Room for Innovation and Creativity, an exceptional venue. The IB Art students displayed their cumulative projects and were happy to explain to the visitors the meaning behind their works.
The opening of this annual art show is one of the cultural highlights of the school year. Student artists and their families look forward to this important event that showcases the fruit of two years of study and work. During the week that follows the opening night the external IB examiner comes and grades the students on their work. Every year since the mid-90s, the IB Art Show has displayed the very best of the visual artistic talent in the student body.
The ever growing number of students applying to and accepted at the world’s best art schools is a testimony to the high level of work exhibited at the show. Former faculty, and alumni who as students were in the IB Art class, often return to see the work of the new artists, some even becoming “regulars” of the show.
This year the American School enjoyed the presence of former faculty member Anne Mustienes (1972-2001). Several alumni from a wide range of generations paid a visit to this special event. Among the attendees were Amalia Sandoval (’01), Tica Echols (’70), Claudia Rojo (’07), Juan Ortiz (’78), Pedro Pueyo (’08), Tersa Ramos (’13), Diego Muñoz Iglesias (’13), Nader Arab (’09), Armando Eras Ruiz (’07), Angeles García Rubio (’07), Hugo Iñiguez (’01), Iñigo Semprún (’13), Victoria de la Cámara (’05), Diego Bestard (’01), Carlos Mustienes (’88), and Kim Cullen (’91).
