M-G students celebrate James Dean’s birthday with art | News – Google Alerts

FAIRMOUNT — A gallery of portraits inspired by the photography of James Dean opened on Feb. 8 at The Branch in Fairmount. Charles P. Quinn, along with the James Dean Archive, sponsored the first ever Madison-Grant James Dean Photography Contest for Madison-Grant students. The opening took place on James Dean’s birthday.

The idea was first brought to the Madison-Grant art department by Quinn, and Madison-Grant art teacher Cherie Solms loved the idea.
