“I was pretty nervous about [the Poster Design Competition] when I entered it, but I think it really benefitted me in the long run,” said Tess Brownson, the 2008 Poster Design Competition winner working towards a Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts & Animation at The Art Institute of Colorado. “I had something published and now I’m at school and have all of this experience to talk about.”
“We are excited to be part of this scholarship competition,” said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “The entry pieces are not only vibrant and exciting, but also a great reminder of how much art can touch us in our everyday lives.”
