|First AAO Art Festival a Huge Success!|
Last Thursday's inaugural AAO Art Festival was such a success that it's set to become an annual event, according to organizer Michelle Kwon. Of the dozens of submissions, the following pieces took top honors:
"Leonid Afremov Rendition," Christopher Banna, third year
"Table Rock Trail, Utah" and "Good evening at the Farm," Kathy Olson, staff
Third prize (tie)
"GuitArt," Dena Shahani, third year and "My RP," Sepideh Omidghaemi, second year
Prize winners received Visa giftcards: $100 for first, $50 for second and $25 to each of the third place recipients. Numerous people won raffle prizes; a special congratulations to third year Erin Sinkoff, who won the grand prize-an iPad!
Be on the lookout for a few works of art from the festival to brighten the walls of ICO and the IEI throughout the next year. View photos from the festival in our Facebook album.
