At Miss Hall’s, we value collaboration—between students, between faculty, and even between students and faculty!

This charcoal portrait of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a collaborative project of April Harwood ’23, Dillon Rogers ’21, and Studio Art Teacher Ellie Spangler, all of whom are inspired by the young congresswoman. After completing the portrait, they surrounded it with selected quotes that resonated with them. The drawing currently hangs in the stairwell between the first and second floors of the Thompson Humanities Wing.
