Their artworks are typically provocative and demonstrate a broad awareness of current art themes, styles, and processes. Museum visitors are often challenged and intrigued by the aspiring graduates' creations.

During the April 2, 2022, Saturday afternoon reception, the Museum Director will award the cash prize funded by the Walter R. Beardsley Endowment for Contemporary Art to one of the four artists.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Humana Foundation Endowment for American Art.
