February 09, 2012

Angelo State University art major Sean Halstead has been named the top prize winner in ASU’s 2011 Holland Symposium Student Contest.

Halstead, who specializes in graphic design, won first place and a $500 prize for his digital print, “Pigskin Pledge.”

All contest entries will be on public display March 1-23 in the ASU Art Gallery, Room 193 of the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.  Halstead and all of the student participants will be honored during an awards ceremony on Wednesday, March 7, from 4-5 p.m. in the gallery.  Both the exhibition and the awards ceremony are open free to the public. 

Contest entries were judged on creativity, originality, depth of thought, technical competency and relation to the “Sports and American Values” theme of the 2011 E. James Holland University Symposium on American Values.  Symposium judges were ASU faculty John Mattson from the Art and Music Department and Dr. Laurence Musgrove, head of the English and Modern Languages Department.
