Art Contest Winners Receive Awards From Class of 1961

 Originally published in Dartmouth Now, May 24, 2016 by Charlotte E. Albright

Sheltered by a grove of trees in College Park near Bartlett Tower, immortalized in bronze, sits Robert Frost. Over the past few months, artists studying or working at Dartmouth have made pilgrimages to this quiet spot, creating their own artwork based on the statue, which was donated in 1996 by the Class of 1961. Nine Dartmouth artists recently won awards in an art contest marking the 20th anniversary of the $50,000 gift.

The alumnus who came up with the idea for the contest, Victor Rich ’61, made the award presentations on May 19 in the lobby of the Black Family Visual Arts Center, where the winning work was displayed. Entries were invited from four media: sculpture, painting, photography, and drawing.

Alumni Spotlight: Helen Hou '14

Alumni Helen Hou '14 graduated from the Studio Art program and is currently pursuing pharmaceutical studies at the University of California, San Francisco. She was recently featured in a UCSF article which discusses the common ground she has discovered between art and pharmacy.

"To first-year pharmacy student Helen Hou, creating art is a way of connecting to patients, caregivers, and her community. 'It’s not always intuitive to see art and pharmacy combined, but many of the soft skills are similar,' said Hou. 'You have to be very observant, for example, and present information in a way that another person can relate to and understand.' "
