Ian Hornak was a 1960 New Haven High School graduate.  He went on earning a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in fine arts, and began exhibiting his artwork in 1972.  Hornak later on became know for “elaborate, extremely detailed paintings of flowers, food and tableware that recall the 17th-century Dutch vanitas tradition.”

As part of a renovation project, New Haven High School conducted a clean up.  In this clean up, a sketch made nearly 60 years ago – by Ian Hornak.  Talk about a hidden treasure!
