Last Friday evening at the Annual Stilwell Student Art Awards Exhibition’s opening reception, the Libraries’ Adrienne Evans (Archives and Special Collections student assistant – photographs) and David Lethcoe (Archives and Special Collections student assistant – photographs and digitization/Circulation) did very well!
Adrienne had two pieces selected for inclusion and was awarded Honorable Mention by the art faculty. Adrienne had one of her pieces selected for the Diversity Office Purchase Award and that piece will be permanently installed in the Academic Commons once the exhibition comes down. (Adrienne is a senior English major and photography minor.)
David Lethcoe had one piece selected for inclusion and was awarded the prestigious Art Department Faculty Choice Award. (David is a senior sculpture major.)
A tradition of the Stilwell Student Art Awards Exhibition is the exhibition for one night only of the pieces that did not make it into the juried Stilwell Exhibition. This salon is organized by the students and is called the Stilwell dés Refusés. The best of show is called the Muse Award and is selected by vote of the public. I am happy to announce that David Lethcoe was the winner of this year’s Muse Award.
