Julia Hart, sophomore at Maple Mountain High in Nebo School District, was selected by the Utah State Senate Visual Arts competition to represent the state and Nebo School District for her 9"X12" pencil drawing referencing a 1905 photographic portrait by Edward Curtis of the Sioux Lakota warrior “Chief Three Horses.”

Julia “Jules” wrote, “Curtis wanted to show the world what was happening to the Native Americans as their culture slowly faded away. He wanted to help preserve their nation. I think it's important that Curtis used a medium that would reach out to all people while opening their eyes to what was happening. He wanted to encourage others to preserve this amazing culture. Without all of the cultures of the world that are and have been, Utah wouldn't be the same. That's why I wanted to do this picture because just like pencils are fundamental to drawing, the Native Americans were the foundation of Utah and our country.”
