    The Department of Art & Art History will announce award winners later this summer.

    This year's Juror is Paul David Seeman. Paul is a native Texan, born in Houston, raised in Austin, and now living and working in San Antonio, Texas. Paul earned his MFA in Sculpture at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and a BFA in studio art from Texas State University in San Marcos. His sculptures and installations are designed with passion and love. They are shaped by fire, muscle, blood, and sweat. Paul believes that medium is dictated by meaning, passion, form, and function rather than obligation. Learning to work with new materials is part of the artist's experience to Paul. His recent works are composed of cast metal, ceramics, wood, string, plastic, and of course, dancing metal. To Paul, sculpture is an engaging way to bring awareness, emotion, color, and beauty into a place.

    A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances - this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

    Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
