Leah Tacha, Visual Arts MFA candidate honored with $1000 Patricia Kerr Ross Award

Leah Tacha, School of Art+Design MFA Candidate was awarded the $1,000 2009 Patricia Kerr Ross Award.

Ever heard of the saying, "One man's garbage is a another man's treasure"? Well, Leah is a living testament; she transforms (or recycles) discarded/found materials into purposeful, sculptural works of art that effortlessly excites the imaginations of those viewing her work. The Ross Award will enable this emerging artist to continue making artwork while transitioning from academia to the professional art world.

"The Patricia Kerr Ross Award of $1,000 is given annually to an individual selected for excellence, originality and promise..." MORE INFO
