PRINCETON UNIVERSITY CONCERTS ANNOUNCES WINNERS
OF THE SIXTH ANNUAL CREATIVE REACTIONS CONTEST
Dedicated to the memory of Vera Sharpe Kohn
How might one visually represent the experience of going to a Princeton University Concerts event? Thirty-two Princeton University students, both undergraduate and graduate, signed up to take on this challenge as part of the sixth annual Creative Reactions Contest, one of several programs sponsored by the concert series to engage students in classical music. Getting free access to a range of Princeton University Concerts offerings — including traditional concerts, Performances Up Close with audience seated on stage, Live Music Meditations, and the Annual Chamber Jam — the students were offered the chance at a $1000 prize if they anonymously submitted a drawing of their experience, with an accompanying artist statement about their work.
After two rounds of judging — the first by Princeton University Concerts staff, and the second by local artist Marsha Levin-Rojer, Lewis Center for the Arts lecturer and former Hodder Fellow Mario Moore, and staff graphic designer Tom Uhlein
