Elie Wiesel Writing & Visual Arts Competition

Every year, the Holocaust Commission invites middle and high school students in grades 6-12 to participate in writing and visual arts competitions named in honor of Nobel Laureate and Holocaust Survivor, Elie Wiesel.

Arazeli Gutierrez, a Junior at King's Fork High School, created an art piece entitled Sorgen that was featured in the Visual Arts Virtual Art Show.

Below the picture are links to the art show and a time lapse video of Arazeli creating the work.



The title of the piece is “Sorgen'' - the German word for sorrow.  Humans have the ability to fight through sorrow and move towards a better life.  This could be shown by the Jewish people during the Holocaust and through minority groups who are fighting for equality in the United States.
