Fox Chapel Area High School junior Sofia Porter Bacon has had her original artwork selected for the Art.Write.Now.Tour 2017-18.

Prior to having her piece chosen for the national display, her work entitled “How aliens return the cows they abducted,” was named a national Gold Medal winner in the Scholastic Art Awards of 2017, entered when she was a sophomore.

Approximately 50 of the best works from the national competition were selected for the traveling exhibition.

In its eighth year, this tour is celebrated for being the most fresh and relevant look at creative work by young artists.

In addition to the visual artworks on display, it also features the best teen writing of 2017, Scholastic's annual anthology of selected National Medal writing.

The Art.Write.Now.Tour begins this month and ends in June 2018.The tour will stop at Tulsa Community College in Tulsa, Okla., the Living Arts & Science Center in Lexington, Ky. , the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, N.Y., and the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. The tour is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and Blick Art Materials & Ultrecht Art Supplies.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
