An art exhibition entitiled "Sound of Nature" held recently at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, featured the work of Rosary senior Keqin Chen. Her exhibition included paintings of animals in nature, with an emphasis on how animals in the wild are affected by climate change. In attendance were dignitaries from city, county, and state agencies who presented Keqin with certificates of recognition and awards for service to her community. Several news agencies covered the exhibit, and interviewed Keqin, her art director, and school principal, Mr. Sean Basford. Many of Keqin's Rosary friends and family were also there to support her, and were awed by the talent on display.
In addition to drawing attention to a cause she is passionate about, Keqin raised money from the sale of her work, and donated it to non-profits that she feels strongly about. Rosary Academy received a check for $2,000, and two of Keqin's original paintings. We are most grateful to Keqin for sharing her talent for the benefit of so many. She is the embodiment of "serving the dear neighbor without distinction."
