Congratulations to the award winners from our Fall 2019 Term!
On Friday, December 20th, we celebrated the end of a fantastic semester with a party in the SACI garden. Students, staff, and faculty shared memories and highlights from their past few months in Florence. Students in SACI’s Creative Writing class and Creative Writing instructor Lee Foust performed readings and performances in the Clayton Hubbs Lecture Hall. The SACI Video class, led by Basilio de San Juan Guerrero, also showed the videos they produced during the term, and students in SACI’s Animation class, led by Esperanza Guevara, screened their animation of works from the semester.
SACI President Steven Brittan congratulated all students on an excellent and productive semester and awarded two end-of-term student prizes. The SACI Jules Maidoff Award for Best Student Artwork was shared by Abigale Rigamonti (College of Charleston) and Grace Ebacher-Rini (Virginia Commonwealth University) for their work in sculpture. The David Davidson award went to advanced painting student Jimin Oh (Agnes) (Maryland Institute College of Art), and the SACI Honorable Mention went to two students: Charles Cerrone (Chaplain College), for work in Color Photography, and Caio Cassarino (Suffolk University) for work in Fashion Design.
Congratulations to all!
