Awarded annually to the third or fourth year undergraduate student in a Visual Arts program who submits the best work in textile arts. Students must present original, completed work that demonstrates significant use of textiles to the Chair of the Visual Arts Department by January 28, 2014.
The Chair of the Department of Visual Arts, in consultation with at least one other faculty member, will select the recipient.
