DSU student well-received at NDUS Arts and Humanities Summit
Posted on 10/26/2012
Jenna Alexander, senior art education major at Dickinson State University, received a Jurors Award at the North Dakota University System Arts and Humanities Summit earlier this month. Only three Jurors' Awards are given out in the state of North Dakota.
The NDUS Arts and Humanities Summit is hosted biannually by an NDUS institution. The summit highlights the arts and humanities with presentations of papers on a wide variety of subjects, theater presentations, music and dance groups and a visual arts exhibit.
Alexander submitted a digital image entitled, "Breaking Boundaries," which earned her a Jurors Award. Juror Sally Jeppson, Jamestown Art Center gallery manager, participated as a juror at this year's summit.
"The content had meaning for the artist and was used symbolically," said Jeppson. "I enjoyed looking at this piece."
