In 2004 Collins Library established an annual art award for a graduating Studio Art Major. The winning work is selected by a library panel of staff and students and is announced at the Senior Art Show’s opening reception. The student artist receives a cash prize and the artwork is prominently displayed in Collins Library for one year.
This year's recipient is Willa Bartholomay. In selecting Willa, the committee was especially enamored of their commitment and labor intensive process, beautifully emphasizing intersections between people, place, and materiality. We are thrilled to honor Willa with this year’s Senior Art Award and look forward to exhibiting their work in Collins Library in the upcoming year. Congratulations, Willa!
