Keeping You Connected at the Intersection of Art and Industry
Featuring works by Winthrop University visual arts students.
The COROART contest in the United States will soon be underway! Coroplast Tape Corporation is delivering a variety of technical adhesive tapes to Winthrop University where visual art students of Shaun Cassidy, Professor of Fine Arts, were invited to reinvent the materials in innovative ways. While there is no specific thematic content or subject direction given, the concept of COROART is focused on experimenting with modern and technical materials.
The completed works of art will be displayed first at Coroplast Tape Corporation’s U.S. headquarters in Rock Hill, SC. Select pieces will then be moved to the Arts Council of York County’s Center for the Arts where they will be on display from November 20 – 24, 2019. A public reception and the COROART Awards presentation will be held at the Center for the Arts on Friday, November 22, 2019 from 5:00 – 7:30 PM.
The students are contending for the COROART Award presented by the Coroplast Tape Corporation. These awards are accompanied by cash prizes funded by Coroplast, and include 1st Prize ($1,000), 2nd Prize ($500), and 3rd Prize ($250). The 2019 COROART Award jury includes a panel of three judges:
Ashley Beard | Arts Council of York County board member, artist, art teacher
J. Michael Simpson | artist, UNC - Charlotte (retired)
Tom Stanley | artist, Winthrop University (retired)
