Saturday, March 5, the University of Iowa’s Grant Wood Art Colony will award the Grant Wood Legacy Prize to three outstanding high-school visual artists: Siyu Chen (Unity Christian High School, Orange City), Maisy Wasenius (Treynor Junior Senior High School), and Emma Isenhart (Des Moines Christian School, Urbandale). The three prize recipients were selected from a pool of over 400 visual art entries from students across the state. Current Grant Wood Fellows Johnathan Payne and Elena Smyrniotis selected the winners for their demonstration of a Regional voice and skill. Judges reviewed entries from Iowa students in the media categories in which Grant Wood worked: jewelry, painting, drawing and illustration, printmaking, design, ceramics and glass, and mixed media. The Grant Wood Legacy Prize is a collaboration with the Belin-Blank Center, which serves as the affiliate for the Iowa and Midwest Region-at-Large Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
