Award-Winning Alumni Exhibit Their Artwork at the Hop

On a hot day in Hanover, student employee Jessica Venturino ’15 keeps watch in the air-conditioned Jaffe-Friede Gallery in the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

Each week, she works a five-hour shift, monitoring the gallery, where the work of last year’s Perspectives On Design (POD) Award winners is on exhibit. Not surprisingly, she has become quite familiar with the artwork of the four recent Dartmouth graduates—Bogyi Banovich ’11, Do-Hee Kim ’12, Stuart Lantry ’12, and Emily Shaw ’12.

“I really like this one,” she says, pointing to a work by Shaw—an apparent moose antler in the shape of a swing, which hangs prominently from the ceiling. “It’s just such a cool idea. But they’re all pretty impressive.”

Visitors can get a look at the works through September 1.

The annual POD Award was established by David and Judith Collins, the parents of Paul Collins ’90. The award recognizes exceptional work by graduating studio art majors. The winners receive funding to pursue their art for a year, which culminates in the Jaffe-Friede exhibition at Dartmouth the following summer.
