2017 Juror: Nick Mendoza
$500 Best in Show Award

Nick Mendoza is a Utah based graphic designer, artist, and educator. His work contributes to dialogue surrounding social issues like immigration, including large scale prints and works on paper exploring relationships between Mexico and the United States. He received a BFA in graphic design from Brigham Young University and MFA in graphic design from the University of Utah. 



2017 Theme: Movement

-kinesis is a compound term assigned to words connoting action: physical, sensory, or conceptual. The 2017 Art of OUR CENTURY show calls for art relating to the idea of movement in all forms. Art Movements, Kinetic or Social Sculpture, Video, physical fluidity, interactive design, and emotional instigators are just some examples of relevant entries. Whether an agitation, a long journey, or a gentle progression, all work that “moves” is desirable.
