Managing Editor and Curator, Kelsey Armstrong, helped this project get back off the ground.
"The new Pegasus will be highlighting one senior artist a month, and their artwork will be showcased on the front page."
Just as Kelsey described, Pegasus will now be a place where Senior Artists can let their work be seen by a lot more then would normally be possible. The showcase includes many pieces by the artist, a small bio, and a video interview of the artist.
Behind the scenes, David Luong, the lead Web Designer, helps put all of this into action. His technological skill and know-how is what gives Pegasus its image and keeps it running. But other then these two, there's one person who is responsible for reviving Pegasus in the first place, Sarah Yuen. Sarah's dream is to restore Pegasus to its former glory and to set a new standard for CMHS arts.
This revamp was done because the staff felt that the site was losing attention as it didn't display the art as efficient as it could've and they needed something new and interesting to bring back the traffic, and hopefully, turn the eyes of CMHS back towards the arts. While the website is still undergoing changes, expect a brand new home for any student's art.
This month, our first showcased artist is Mitchell Grandia and his collection of retro, abstract graphics and photos. Check out Pegasus for the inside look on how he creates and takes his pictures.
