Haldane Senior Wins Art Competition

A painting by Haldane senior Anneke Chan, “Pool Party” (below), was selected to represent New York’s 18th District in the annual Congressional Art Competition, the office of Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney announced on Thursday (June 11).

Chan’s work will be exhibited in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., for a year beginning in September.

Chan, who is the salutatorian at Haldane, plans to pursue a dual degree in studio art and anthropology at Tufts University. She is the first Haldane student to win the 18th District competition.
