Megan Zanin, a junior in the visual arts program at Firestone High School in Akron, along with her team have created a sculpture representing the effects of the Silk Road trade on forms of pottery.
She and two other students researched cobalt oxide and traced its roots from 10th century Iran across Asia to China and from there to Spain, Mexico, the Netherlands and England. The artwork will be on display the evening of the concert and can be viewed on the left wall as you leave the McCormick Lobby and proceed to the Robertson Lobby at E.J. Thomas Hall.
Megan plans for a career in the arts, and is currently considering a number of different colleges and universities.
