Zachary Rapaport, a senior at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, was distinguished as one of 170 emerging young artists by the National YoungArts Foundation, a talent-based scholarship program for high school and college students. The program recognized him with the Merit Award and Finalist Award for achievement in visual arts. His work has been displayed in the Bacardi Tower, Valentine Design, Parsons School for Design and Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts.

“This exhibition is a culmination of my previous artistic endeavors, and demonstrates my passions for art and engineering,” shared artist Zachary Rapaport. “My objective for the show, along with every artwork I make, is to help others break barriers by doing so myself. I feel fortunate to be able to showcase my work to the community.”


Rapaport’s gallery is divided into three sections: the space will comprise of a kinetic installation, photography and multi-planar paintings. The installation is about creating a space where an individual can interact with his or her environment. The large photography and artwork are expressive and a reflection of his desire to impact society.
