Luke Burke, Lake Zurich High School Class of 2008, was selected by his peers to give the Student Remarks at the 2012 Parson’s New School for Design, Photography Department Graduation Ceremony. Burke spoke at the ceremony at which he received a BFA from Parson’s on May 17. He reflected on the collective experience he and his classmates had during their four-year journey at Parson’s.
Arthur Ou, director of BFA Parson’s New School for Design, had this to say about Burke, “Since I've gotten to know Luke from my Junior Seminar class with him, he has grown to be an accomplished artist, with resolve and determination. I don't say this about many students, but I have no doubt that he will do very well."
While an underclassman, Burke’s work has been selected for display at professional galleries in New York City. His recent thesis work can be viewed at www.lukeburke.com.
Luke Burke is the son on Mike Burke and Teri Elliott-Burke of Lake Zurich.
