An Alum Making it Big – You Can GiveBig
In her final year at the New York Academy of Art, Aleah Chapin (AR ’08) has just been named one of four finalists for the prestigious BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery.
London Art News highlighted Aleah’s portrait, Auntie. The winner will be announced on June 19 and the related exhibition runs June 21 through September 23. Learn more about the BP Portrait Award here.
