The Art Institute of Fort Worth Students and Faculty Participate in Visionary Awards The Art Institute of Fort Worth Students and Faculty Participate in Visionary Awards

The Fourth Annual Visionary Awards announced the winners of the Rahr & Sons Brewing Company label design competition.  This year’s competition called to action the outstanding up-and-coming Fort Worth artists to create a custom label to wrap a specially crafted autumnal beer by Rahr & Sons.

Five Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design students from The Art Institute of Fort Worth, a campus of South University, entered the competition and all five were chosen as finalists. Cathy Lincoln, Chelsea Vinson, Tyler Graver, Leticia Andrade, and Joe Melgoza, last year’s Rahr & Sons winner, all submitted interesting, creative designs, although none of them received the top prize.

The Art Institute of Fort Worth was also well represented by Campus Director Lourdes Gipson, who served as one of the guest speakers at the event.
