Inly School alums continue to excel in various forms of art in high school, college, and beyond. Below are just a few stories of Inly graduates mastering the art of fashion, theater, show biz, and graphic design.
Abby Austin (‘10), recently received both a Silver Key and an Honorable Mention in the Boston Globe Scholastic Art and Writing awards for two dresses she created in her “Wearable Art” course at The Cambridge School of Weston. The Silver Key was awarded for the dress she made from Arizona Tea bottle labels. The honorable mention was for the dress she made from 16mm film strips (see featured photo).
Mac Morris (‘11) recently starred in St. Sebastian’s performance of Twelve Angry Men, a play adapted from the Reginald Rose Emmy award-winning television movie by Sherman Sergel and directed by St. Sebastian’s senior Kevin Patterson. Mac played one of the 12 jurors who were deciding the fate of a 19 year-old man accused of fatally stabbing his father. What appeared to be an open-and-shut case turned into a tense negotiating session, where tempers became short and arguments grew heated.
