This was a juried exhibition and award process idea I had while I was the Director of Print Services & Media Resources at the University of the Arts. It included the creation of policy making, planning, marketing, jury selection, partnership with outside organizations, an exhibition, and the award presentation. Six students were selected to show three pieces each that were printed and framed of no cost to the students as a bonus for being selected. There was an arrangement of a 50/50 split(50 student, 50 Gallery) so that the students also had the ability to make money off the sale of their artwork in a real world setting. An additional $1000.00 award was presented to the best of show which was selected by a jury consisting of four of the universities faculty. This is one of my most proud accomplishments while working at the university. I got to take one of my ideas and work with my staff as a team so that we could create something that I believed embodied the very essence in which we were there for, which was to support the students.

Special thanks to Trinity Framing for framing the exhibition, and to Paradigm Gallery for having the show. Photos as in order left to right, top to bottom
