This year the Excellence in the Visual Arts Exhibition Awards will be virtual and guess what – you do get to vote twice during this election year, but for 2020 Excellence in Visual Arts Graduate & Undergraduate Exhibition People’s Choice Awards!
This exhibition is part of the Art on Campus Initiative and is funded by the Graduate School and the College of Undergraduate Studies. It is open to creative students from across the entire FSU campus I hope we can support them by viewing and reading about their work in this show.
On Friday, October 30th, our online gallery and voting opened and I an encouraging everyone to visit the site and to vote on the various PEOPLE’S CHOICE Awards we have. There are two galleries; a graduate and undergraduate gallery, so please visit both and vote for your favorite in each gallery.

Please feel free to support your favorite artists and join us for this virtual launch and presentation. We will announce the recipients of this year’s awards from the incredible field of work that was submitted to us for our gallery. We will also announce the recipient of the audience favorite. Please feel free to forward this information and encourage people to vote for the audience favorite before 4pm on Friday.
Although we hoped to have this exhibition and presentation in the Honors, Scholar’s & Fellow’s House (HSF) galleries, the HSF House folks have done a great job of creating a wonderful online gallery of the works selected for exhibition. I am incredibly thankful for everyone’s patience and for the beautiful and thoughtful artwork the students provided for us this year, and look forward to being able to see most of this year’s selected artist’s works in person in the galleries next spring as part of the Art on Campus Initiative.
