KHMS Student Wins Citywide Art Contest

The City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Commission today announced that Cyaundra Chatman’s artwork titled “Free to Be...” is the winner of the commission’s Seventh Annual Citywide Art Contest. Cyaundra, a 12-year-old student at Kitty Hawk Middle School, created her artwork using a sketch pad, pencil, pen, and markers.

“I was inspired by Dr. King’s 'I Have A Dream' speech when he talks about all people are created equal, racial injustice and how we are all God's children,” said Chatman. “To me 'Free to Be... ' means you are free to be yourself no matter what it is. Everyone should be accepted and comfortable in their own skin.

Chatman’s entry will be used as the visual representation of the 2022 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative March and Legacy Celebration which takes place on Monday, January 17, 2022, at 10:00 am. Read News Release.
