For the sixth year the Center for Mark Twain Studies has sponsored the “Portraying Mark Twain” art competition for all Elmira College students. Four final images were selected from forty submissions that represented Mark Twain, his literature, or aspects of his life in Elmira and Quarry Farm. First place winner is Carina Gibbs’23. Three honorable mention winners are Alex Taylor’23, Hannah Baxter’23 and Quintel Clements’22. Their winning entries will be featured in future publications of Elmira College and the Center for Mark Twain Studies.
Works by former winning students can be seen in the new “Mark Twain and Elmira” exhibit in Cowles Hall, on social media posts, and in various printed matter relating to the Center. New works are being accepted for the 2023 contest.
The general public can view of all of the 2022 submissions HERE.
