The artists include Janine Velardi’19 (photo), Kaitlyn Ritz’18 (mixed media), Miranda Satterly’17 (digital drawing), and Nick Vanderwood’19 (chalk drawing).
A panel of ten judges made up of Elmira College faculty and staff made the selections from entries that included photographs, drawings, digital collage and even a gif. The many entries of Mark Twain inspired art work ranged from landmarks found in Elmira to Clemens’ living quarters in London. All entries can be viewed online here.
