Juror: Wayne Trapp

Curator: Hank T. Foreman

Juror's Statement

It was an honor and a pleasure to juror the 28th annual Rosen. I love the process as a juror of going through images of many artists. It always astounds me, the wide range of images that the artistic mind can conjure up. I feel that the entries for the Rosen exhibit were by and large of a scale which I consider to be examples of public art. The way they were placed on campus by the Turchin staff enhanced all of these sculptures. I hope the people over this coming year will enjoy the presence of this art and I hope it will inspire younger people to pursue sculpture.
