We are delighted to announce that Pietra Herculano Tabosa, a student in Year 8 at Lambeth Academy, was awarded a prize at the Fourth Plinth School Awards held in the new City Hall, Canning Town, for her submission 79 Different Eyes, for the borough of Lambeth.
Art teacher Mrs Scarlett Hanley worked closely with the Year 7 and Year 8 Art enrichment students to design pieces that responded to the brief expressing their views on life in London. The group designed sculptures that showcased their personal viewpoint. Pietra's design centred on her glasses and reflected the diversity within her community and the numerous languages and cultures she encounters. In total seven students from Lambeth Academy entered the competition, competing against 2000 artworks entered from school’s across London. This year’s entries included artworks tackling issues of climate change, gender equality, mental health, and the history of London.
Artist Samson Kambalu and Justine Simons OBE, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, announced the winners at the annual awards ceremony.
The winning artworks will be displayed in an exhibition at London’s City Hall from 5 May to mid-June 2022.
Congratulations to Pietra, and her teacher Mrs Hanley, for this wonderful achievement.
