The Student Picks Sweepstakesended last Friday, and we’ve found our six winners!

Student Picks gives students the chance to curate their own one-day exhibitions of works on paper in the Cunningham Center for Prints, Drawings and Photographs.Six lucky students are chosen by lottery as part of a campus-wide sweepstakes that takes place each September.

Student Picks ballot box in the Museum Lobby, one of five locations around campus where students could enter the contest.

This year, we collected over one thousand ballots from the ballot boxes around campus, with entries from 271 students – that’s over ten percent of Smith's student body trying to win their own exhibition!

Jessica Nicoll, director of the Museum, came by the Cunningham Centerthis past Monday to pick our six winners and two alternates.
