Artist, curator and Connecticut College Professor of Art, Timothy McDowell (www.timothymcdowellartist.com), has chosen Alyssa Reiser-Prince to be a part of the 2014 Miami University Young Painters Competition. Through the generous gift from William (MU1936) and Dorothy Yeck of Dayton, Ohio, Miami University has a unique opportunity to provide students and the community at large to develop a critical understanding of painting in the 21st century. The competition winner will be awarded the $10,000 William and Dorothy Yeck Award and the painting will become part of Miami University’s permanent collection. This year’s competition focuses on non-representational works.
