For graduating art students from high school to graduate school, the spring semester has been a uniquely challenging time. Student showcases and senior thesis exhibitions across the country have been canceled, and while some have been rescheduled, many students won't have the opportunity to see their artwork displayed in public.
To make sure they don't miss out entirely, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) has launched the Student Showcase 2020 – a virtual exhibition of artworks by high school and college students in art and design fields. While there is no replacement for a physical exhibition, we hope this project will bring light to the diversity of artistic talent, dedication, and vision in the Class of 2020.
The overall Best in Show distinction has been awarded to Nebraska-based artist, Christie Asuoha.
The winner of the People's Choice award is North Carolina-based artist, Sarah Hickman.
