League for Innovation Student Art Competition 2013The 26th Annual League for Innovation Student Art Competition was hosted by Mountain View College, Jan. 22 through Feb. 8, 2013, in the Kiva and North Bridge Galleries. The show reception and awards presentation was held in the galleries on Thursday, February 7 at Mountain View College.
Each of the 7 campuses of the DCCCD choose and submit up to 10 art works from their own students for entries in the League for Innovation Student Art Competition. These 70 pieces form the regional League for Innovation Exhibition hosted annually at Mountain View College. An invited juror chooses 5 pieces from the 70 submitted to advance to the national competition. The 5 pieces selected will be published, representing each of the community colleges or districts, in a nationally distributed catalogue. On the national level of the competition, a recognized artist or art educator selects the top award winners. There are money prizes for the top three places and for a Juror's Purchase Award.
