The 25th Annual Virginia Judd Beam Visual Arts Invitational and Prize

Through a generous endowment gift from Frank and Virginia Judd Beam ’54, this event offers students the opportunity to create art in a wide range of media and submit it for consideration in a juried art exhibition. The Beam Invitational acknowledges the vital role that the visual arts play in the academic curriculum at Laurel. Through the exploration of the visual arts, students not only gain technical proficiency, but are encouraged to think independently, take risks and flex their creative “muscles”—skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. 
 
This year the exhibition is appearing in a virtual format and without jurying or prizes due to the extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to return to our usual format in the future. In the meantime, please enjoy the amazing talents of our 2019-2020 Junior and Senior artists.
“In the creation of all forms of art there can be found a certain harmony that provides joy and fulfillment. It makes no difference whether the creative experience is fleeting or uncovers a real talent, whether the outcome is complex art or simple...the lasting result is an exhilarating experience that is enriching. We hope the Virginia Judd Beam Visual Arts Invitational and Prize will be the extra incentive that ignites the creativity that dwells in every girl and stays with her for a lifetime.” 
—Frank and Virginia Judd Beam ’54
