The show is in the university's art gallery through Jan. 11.
Curran's work, "Anarchy TM," depicts a marionette with six arms
and a head bigger than its body, sporting two Mohawks. The figure is
set against a plaid background and peppered with random
Curran and five of his classmates, as well as six art students at
Burbank High School, are represented in the show. Curran's classmate,
Lucy Fabio, 18, also has her work in the show. Her acrylic painting,
"Trinity," depicts half a woman's face, a light source of the sun, a
ball and an open mouth.
"It represents the contrast of purity with the excitement of doing
the wrong thing," Fabio said.
An 8-by-10-inch acrylic painting of a bird in flight, in shades of
gray with a green background, is Susan Estrada's entry. Estrada, 18,
said she was inspired to paint the bird after seeing a similar photo
in a wildlife magazine.
Anderson, who has taught art for seven years at Burroughs, said
her advanced-placement students love art and creating.
"It's fun pushing them and prodding them and knowing that they
will get involved in art," Anderson said.
Other Burroughs students represented in the exhibition are Ricardo
Aguilar, Tigran Berberyan and Zareh Ter-Stepanian.
Burbank High School artists in the show are Edgar Karapetyan, Won
Jang Lee, Lindsay Jorden, Eric Montgomery, Jay Hwang and Danica
