Each year, we do one juried student show and this year, we tried something different from previous years. Instead of inviting a guest artist to jury the exhibition, our own students elected a jury of their peers. Jeffrey Kimpton, president of Interlochen Center for the Arts, visited the the exhibition to select winners of several awards including, the President’s Art Award, the President’s Recognition Award, and two honorable mentions. The visual arts department also presented several other awards.

Ingrid Matison won Best in Show and The President's Art Award. Anela Oh won the President's Recognition Award and George Spica won the Faculty Choice Award. We also recognized Eli Godchaux for outstanding achievement in painting and Ryan Treadwell for outstanding achievement in fibers.
