MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Art students at Columbia High School are displaying artwork inspired by Kehinde Wiley, who painted President Barack Obama’s official portrait, from now through June 3 across from the CHS main office. For their pieces, students were instructed to incorporate decorative paper to serve as the background while creating a fully detailed portrait and using a collage technique to fuse the two.
