Last year we blogged about Georgia Wall (OC ’08) winning the top prize from the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO). This year AICUO recognized senior Amy Rinaldi as the grand prize winner, and also recognized senior Antonio Papania-Davis, Oberlin’s other nominee for the award, as a finalist. Congratulations to both of them for this achievement!
The Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, A.I.C.U.O., created an Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts to raise awareness of their member institutions and the artists they educate. Each of the member Colleges and Universities (there are over forty) are invited to nominate two graduating seniors as candidates for this competition. Six of the nominees are chosen by an independent jury of artists as finalists for the award.
