Albert P. Weisman Award Program
Juror and Project Mentor, 2012–2018
Juror, Project Mentor and Exhibition Coordinator, 2018
Columbia College Chicago
Since 1974, the Albert P. Weisman Award has awarded over $1M and mentor support to more 1,000+ students at Columbia College Chicago for completion of substantial, milestone projects in their development as creative professionals. Awardees receive dedicated project mentors along with funding up to $4K, culminating in a group exhibition on campus each Fall.
I've contributed to program development and administration, served as juror, project mentor and, in 2018, exhibition curator. I advise students in preparing budgets, timelines, proposals, and during project cycles, mentor them in creative development, production planning and execution, sourcing materials and vendors, documenting their work, and delivery of exhibition-ready artwork, as well as promotion and distribution plans extending beyond campus.
