Thu, Feb 12 2009

LeTourneau University invites the public to view student artistic talent during Fine Arts Week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Sunday, Feb. 16 to 22.  The student art will be displayed in Longview and Heath-Hardwick Halls, at the university’s main campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave.  Admission is free.
Artwork will include the traditional two-dimensional category, such as paintings, drawing, photography, notebook sketches/doodles as well as three-dimensional category including original industrial art (fabricated metal sculpture), ceramics, models, paper mache, etc.
           Judges will award top prizes in each category of $65. A prize of $35 will be awarded to the artists for the best of the subcategories (photography, industrial, etc.).
            “I am very excited to see the quality of the art produced by the students,” said Brian Kelsey, YellowJacket Activities Council Fine Arts Coordinator. “ For a university that doesn’t have an official art program, our students have many artistic talents.”
