Annabelle Furrh, a senior in Woodrow Wilson High School’s International Baccalaureate program, has lost both of her grandparents to pancreatic cancer within the past three years.
As part of the IB program, Furrh needed to do a Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) Project. Furrh wanted her project to honor her art-loving grandparents, and she came up with the perfect idea: host an art show that will raise money for the Lustgarten Foundation, which is working toward a cure for pancreatic cancer.
“This seemed like a good way to honor my grandparents, who led amazing lives,” Furrh said.
Furrh’s art show, called ArtBOOM!, will be Tuesday, Nov. 21 from 5–8 p.m. at the Filter Building, 2810 White Rock Road. Professional artists and student artists have donated a variety of works to sell at the art show to benefit the Lustgarten Foundation.
“There will be some great artwork for sale, from sculpture and paintings to drawings,” Furrh said.
