The Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Ohio (AICUO) has announced that two Denison University students were chosen from among their peers as nominees for the AICUO Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts.
Senior studio art majors Christopher Greathouse of Cincinnati and Becca Lynn of Oregon, Ohio, were nominated for the competition, which recognizes outstanding senior artists from independent colleges throughout Ohio. The nominees will compete for a grand award, including a cash prize of $2,500. Portfolios of all artwork submitted by the student nominees are currently being judged by independent college faculty members, community artists, art journalists and state legislators to determine the finalists.
The students’ artwork also is eligible to win a People’s Choice Award, chosen by visitors to the Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts website. The general public is encouraged to vote online through the end of February at www.aicuoartaward.com/. In addition to the Grand Award and the People’s Choice Award, five student nominees will receive awards as competition finalists at a public reception on April 13 at the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University. All nominees from around the state will have their online art portfolios available for viewing at www.aicuoartaward.com/.
