The Studio Arts Department held a juried exhibit of students' works. The juror, Leslie Jones, a curator from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, awarded first place to Desi Stewart '09 and second to Farrin Ochoa '09. David Charbonier '09 and Whitney Egoian '09 tied for third place. Farrin's work entitled Tlacuache was also chosen for the inaugural President's Purchase Prize, which was created with the help of Professor Jenny Herrick to allow the College to acquire works by talented Whittier students. These works will become part of the College's already impressive collection of art and will be exhibited on campus for successive generations of students and visitors to see. All student works are currently on exhibit at The Greenleaf Gallery in Mendenhall on the Whittier campus.
