Osceola High visual art student Debora Cordero's artwork has been selected as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2016 National Fine Arts “Best in Show” winner. Her winning artwork was designed to represent what belonging to a Club means to her and all the young people who make Boys & Girls Clubs part of their lives.
Debora painted her original mural design in the Harlem, New York, Boys & Girls Club. The Renovation Across the Nation Grant, a $2.5 million initiative through its national partnership with Lowe's, will renovate one club in each of the fifty states, the largest single initiative ever undertaken by Lowe's. Debora's artwork will be stenciled and painted in each of the 50 locations across the nation, and she has been featured on Good Morning America.
“Over the last six years, my Club has empowered my passion for art, and I’ve been supported by the mentors and friends who have encouraged me along the way,” said Debora Cordero. “When sketching the mural, I wanted to bring the values, growth, and opportunities that come with being a Club member to life through my design.”
