Berlin senior Daniel Rivera’s artwork is heading for the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

It’s called “Tears of Miss Justice: Mourning A Broken System.”

Daniel started creating his painting in class, and continued for several months.

The painting will travel the world as part of the Smithsonian’s “Art in Embassies” collection.

He sat down with NewsChannel 13 and photojournalist Justin Shumway to talk about the huge honor, and how he came up with the artwork.
