Student Sculpture Breaks World Record And Sells For $102,000!

Hard work and determination paid off for two Katy ISD students whose artwork advanced to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo art auction in March.

McMeans Junior High eighth-grader Charles Jang’s artwork competed in the Grand Prix judging and won first place against students from more than 100 districts. His project was a drawing titled “A Rare Connection.” This was the first year that a junior high student became auction eligible at this level. Jang’s artwork earned “Class Champion” recognition and auctioned off for $65,000!

The detailed work on Fatemeh Ebrahimi’s “Reserve Class Champion” three-dimensional sculpture caught the attention of buyers, who were out-bidding each other to purchase the unique piece. The Taylor High School 11th-grader’s artwork is titled “The Spirit Within.” Only two entries for the three-dimensional category advanced to the art auction where Ebrahimi’s work broke a world record and sold for $102,000!
