Juror’s Choice Awards

Mikha Dominguez (Junior, Fine Arts Studio) 
Santa Maria
Mixed media
“This multimedia work is incredible in its depth. The embellishments emphasize the materiality and create a beautiful frame for the moody, overlapping portraits. The multiple rosaries and dripping candle wax juxtaposed with the flower crowns and the embroidery invite contemplation on representations of both religion and femininity historically” - Kylie Hoang, Fine Arts Juror

Sophia Groves (Senior, Fine Arts Studio)
My mother loved chickens
Charcoal on paper
“Through both the title and imagery of this work, I felt the artist was able to convey a whole world in a few lines of charcoal: I can feel the warmth of an older sibling's embrace, I can hear the gentle cluck of a content chicken. I imagine the animals were brought inside regularly and can feel their familiarity. My mother loved chickens is a work that I have thought about often since our first encounter.” - Kylie Hoang, Fine Arts Juror

Julia Meles (Junior, Sculpture)
Icon table
Walnut wood
“The end table because it is an exemplary example of craftsmanship. The creation of a fluid and abstract form with such a traditionally stoic material is a great example of breaking barriers and thinking outside of the box.” - Kimberly Rashad, Design Juror

Cindy To (Sophomore, Illustration)
Digital, photoshop
“It’s always important to draw inspiration from your culture. The colors and details throughout paint an amazing picture and successfully immerse the viewer into the piece.” - Kimberly Rashad, Design Juror
