Spring 2021 Juried Student Award Art Exhibition

Featuring Jurors Liz Hernández and Al Glann

The Spring 2021 Juried Student Award Art Exhibition, hosted by the Louis Carlos Bernal Gallery, brings together the best student artwork for Fall and Spring Semesters from all the art courses taught at the five campuses at Pima Community College. Many of the students are learning remotely and some in a hybrid modality.

This year the Bernal Gallery has prestigious jurors that choose the student winners, with total awards valued at over $3000. Fifty-Eight students entered the competition with up to three entries in various mediums.

The two jurors are gallery owner Liz Hernández and sculptor Al Glann. Both have a rich background in art and art history and volunteer in the Tucson community.
