... we wouldn't want to be seen as taking sides or promoting one candidate over another. Wouldn't be fair, you know?
On Saturday, January 30, the Emory Arts Competition will culminate in a public gala in the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts' Emerson Concert Hall. This is the second University-wide arts competition; the first took place on November 8, 2008. The winners are here.
For the 2010 competition, you can see all of the entrants in visual arts and music right here. The visual arts category includes paintings, drawings, computer artwork, sculptures, and photography, while the music category will include all vocal and instrumental entries. There is prize money, too, donated by an anonymous lover of the arts ... $1,000 for first prize, $500 for second and $250 for third.
A variety of students, faculty, and staff have made the finals. Oh, and two of the entrants are alumni. Physical therapy graduate student Samuel Crowley 09C 12A performs the song Nineteen Thirty Three, and at the very least, check out the description of the song.
On the visual arts side, Emory alumni are represented by Sarah Blanton 92A 03A, assistant professor of physical therapy in the School of Medicine. Her piece is entitled "Through a Glass Darkly."
So lets hear it for the alumni artists ... but also the artists who are physical therapists. How 'bout them apples?
Tickets are free and the public gala on Saturday is open to all. The competition starts at 8:00 p.m.
