2008 Student Showcase

Our November/December 2008 issue features our fourth annual student showcase illustrating work being produced both in the United States and internationally. We were pleasantly surprised that we received over 100 submissions this year (which was more than double last year’s total). Based on refinement, consistency, and presentation, we selected the following artists to represent the work being created in our colleges and universities today. Here we have selected additional images by our student artists to share with you.

New this year, we have created a page with additional information about all the schools that they attend. Click here to learn about the represented schools.

Also, don’t forget our additional education resources. Visit our Education Resource List to find out about schools in your area, and if you’re an educator, please add your school.
