Charles Rounds III, a senior at Power Academic and Performing Arts Complex in Jackson, Mississippi, won the $6,000 grand prize in the ArtEffect Project, a student art competition sponsored by the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes. Charles’s “Saved by Science” depicts Dr. Eugene Lazowski, who saved thousands of Polish Jews during World War II by injecting them with a harmless bacteria that caused them to test positive for typhus. We spoke with Charles about his winning work, making art during the COVID-19 pandemic and how he plans to use his artistic talents to revitalize his community.
