cody-powers-feetIn choosing the winners for the 2013 Foundations Juried Exhibition, juror Jodie Osborne faced a difficult decision. “I was very impressed overall with the student work, and enjoyed the variety that was submitted.”

Osborn, Director of First Year Programs of Art & Design at UW-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, was also impressed by the various media and approaches used. “It was interesting to me to see that many of the award recipients also had other well-executed pieces in other media included in the show, demonstrating their ability to work across media and subject matter.”
