Everett Aldrich ’14 was one of four winners in the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey art competition. He received $1000 for his work, and it will be displayed at Horizon BCBSNJ’s headquarters in Newark!

From Everett’s artist statement:

[wc_testimonial by=”Everett Aldrich ’14, Student at NJIT’s College of Architecture and Design” url=”” position=”left”]”In my piece, I wanted to show a literal ‘journey to health.’ I’ve portrayed individuals who have just been on a long and horrific journey, and the happiness they’ve received once the cancer was beat… They are giving back so further research and treatment can be conducted. The sunken cheeks and aged looking skin are a sign of stress from his wife’s sickness. He also sheds a tear of joy at the fact that she is alive and well.”[/wc_testimonial]
