2018 20 Under 20: Marc Smith
College Plans: Kansas City Art Institute for my BFA, then go on to pursue a teaching degree.
Biggest Lesson Learned in High School: “Pretty things are usually the most dangerous.” This quote is intended to help recognize poisonous wildlife. I found it versatile to help recognize myself, art work, and relationships.
Future Goals: My future goals are to move to Kansas City, get my BFA, and see where life takes me. I am excited to “see the world”͟ as my mother likes to put it. I want to see the things from my dreams and make art that will never be found outside of one.
Person I Admire and Why: I admire my great grandmother Mary French; she is the wisest person I know, and without her compassion and love, I would never aspire for greatness like hers.
