Q&A With Katherine Oung
by Kaja Andric 
Communications senior Katherine Oung has a multitude of accomplishments––she’s published in the New York Times and Vox, a 2021 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist, president of the Speech and Debate Team at Dreyfoos, and more.

A lot of things I do outside of school––the reason I am interested in doing them in the first place is because I got the opportunity to learn about journalism and current events and civic engagement because of my major.” Oung says.

Q&A With Andy & Christine Hall
by Kaja Andric and Sophia Roud
Andy and Christine Hall –– founders and directors of the Hall Art Foundation –– have contributed a myriad of donation support to the Artist Adjunct Fund as well as pledges to scholarships in support of Black artists. 

"By giving money to Dreyfoos [School of the Arts Foundation], you can change someone's life", says Andy Hall.

Phillips has partnered with the Hall Art Foundation to offer a group of works in their 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale on December 8th at 2 PM. All proceeds received from the sale will go to the Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation and will be used to implement scholarships for low-income Black students who wish to pursue a career in the visual and performing arts. 

Some 20 contemporary artists, including Georg Baselitz, Katherine Bradford, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Anselm Kiefer, Robert Longo, Peter Saul, Kenny Scharf and Julian Schnabel, have generously agreed to donate works to the Hall Art Foundation for the benefit. With estimates ranging from $8,000 to $700,000, the selection of works will present an opportunity for collectors at all levels to participate in this important initiative.
