BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The annual Student Art Show Competition and Exhibit opens today at the Union Art Gallery. Over the next few days, you can go and vote for your favorite piece and help select a winner.
The pre-juried show is now open to the public and anyone can vote for their favorite submission from now until Feb. 8. The one with the most votes will win the Popular Choice prize.
But the judging doesn’t end there.
Three professional jurors will take a look at each selection. The jurors include Dale Newkirk, professor of sculpture at Southeastern Louisiana University; Ann Schwab, photographer and assistant chair of visual arts at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts; and David Horton, professor of graphic design and painting at Nicholls State University.
