16 seniors will compete for Rickert-Ziebold award

by Andrea Hahn

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- It’s an honor just to compete in the Rickert-Ziebold Trust Award, hosted by the School of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University Carbondale each year.

The art competition is for senior art students, and carries a substantial financial award.  The finalists, chosen by a panel of art faculty, have a limited time to install their art in the Surplus Gallery in the Glove Factory art facility (432 S. Washington Ave., Carbondale).  Judges for the competition rate the students not only on their art, but also on the way in which they use their assigned spaces to display it.
