Briggs Library Associates Senior Art Award
Velora Wilson is the winner of the 2021 Briggs Library Associates Art Award for her piece A Journey to One's Own Happiness from the Senior Art Show. She is a Theatre Arts major and a Studio Art minor.
It is a self-portrait done with thick golden acrylic paint.
"What I find most interesting and satisfying about creating a piece of art is that it's my own," she said.
After graduation Velora plans to save up some money and open up her own gallery. She wants to be able to have people come and see her art.
