The 2022 Youth Art Showcase is dedicated in honor of the life of Sam Qiao
Sam Qiao (January 23, 2001 – March 7, 2022) was born in Hoboken, NJ of the Tri-State Area. Sam spent his early childhood in Niskayuna, NY, and his formative years in Pearland, TX where he was a legend among his peers for his larger-than-life stunts, compassion, abundant kindness, and dare-devil ways. Sam was an artist, a creative, and an aspiring architect. He made wands with his hands, painted murals on the walls of refugee centers, and drawings with his mind that only he could understand. Sam leaves his everlasting legacy through the lives of his family, friends, and community whom he loved deeply, and who love him vastly in return. We hope Sam finds peace in designing the future buildings of Heaven.
