Each year we receive thousands of entries for our Artistic Excellence competition. Round after round, we whittle them down until only three top winners and 10 honorable mentions remain. But beyond these 13, we receive many works that are dynamic, expressive, and skillfully executed. Here we present a sampling of the 70 artists who made it to our final round.
Meet the 13 artists who came out on top in our annual art competition.
Honorable Mention: Eric Bowman, Oregon
