Criteria for judging this year's Perry Award Winners:

The fundamental quality that I look for in a work of art is generosity, which speaks to the work’s relationship with viewers. Simply stated, a generous artwork makes room for viewers. More specifically, a generous artwork participates in a discourse, which means that it articulates a cogent expression (an awareness, a narrative, a critical idea, or even a sensibility) that is designed to solicit an open-ended response from viewers. In addition to generosity, I closely examined the presentation of the work, asking questions such as how carefully considered and effective were the decisions about installation, the choices of material expression, format, and symbolic content. This second criterion was further extended to my evaluation of the posted artist statements as well as the individual student’s oral presentation of the work to me. It should be noted that my choices were not made easily, as I was very impressed by the overall caliber of the work and the thoughtful exchanges I had with students. In fact, the only disappointment I encountered was the limited number of awards. Congratulations to each of you for an outstanding accomplishment!
