West High Student Receives Toyota of Iowa City Artist Commission

Iowa City West junior Rong Zhou (Selina) Hua has been selected by Toyota of Iowa City and Summer of the Arts to have an original painting commissioned as part of the Creating a Legacy of Local Artists competition sponsored by Toyota of Iowa City. Now in its third year, this collaboration encourages local Johnson County, Iowa, youth age 16 – 25 to consider a career in the arts. The selected artist receives $3,000 for their original artwork and will also be featured at the Iowa Arts Festival.

Hua is developing an inspirational piece for a watercolor painting which will be unveiled on Friday, May 31st at 6:45 PM on the Iowa Arts Festival Main Stage. On Saturday and Sunday, attendees can view the piece in the Emerging Artist Pavilion at the corner of Washington and Linn Streets. Following the festival, the piece will be displayed at Toyota of Iowa City.

Previous selected local artists include Kate Goodvin of City High in 2018 and Hannah Song of The University of Iowa in 2017. Toyota of Iowa City is committed to the arts in our community and also sponsors the Friday Night Concert Series.
