Evie Brooks understands the impact of art on life -- especially hers.
The Zionsville Community High School senior, who won Best of Show at the school's End of the Year Art Show with an environmental sculpture, said art has expanded her horizons. She'll attend Syracuse this fall to study architecture, and art played no small part in that.
Brooks grew up the daughter of two engineers but always had an interest in visual art. She said architecture is a good blend of the technical and the aesthetic.
"I started out thinking about being an artist," Brooks said. "I started out with drawing, and this year I started doing pottery and wheel-throwing, and I fell in love with it. It's cathartic."
