Arts at The Hill
The mission of The Hill School Arts Department is to awaken the joy of creation through the visual and performing arts. There are many opportunities for students to immerse themselves in performing and visual arts at The Hill.
Each year, the Congressional Institute sponsors a high school Congressional Art Competition, the Artistic Discovery Contest, to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Pork Belly, an oil painting by Angela Jin ’24, was chosen as the overall winner of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition for the Fourth District of Pennsylvania. Shadow Walking, a photograph by Grace Capecci ’24, and Traffic Light, a photograph by Yina Yao ’25, were selected as runners-up in the competition.
This immersive theatrical event based on the popular trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins will come to life on (and off) stage for the first time ever at The Hill School on Friday, May 20 at 7:15 p.m. with additional shows on Saturday, May 21 at 7:15 p.m. and Sunday, May 22 at 5 p.m.
