Congratulations to our winners!

Artists respond to, reflect, and help to produce the world that we live in, and in doing so, provide different ways to understand our own experiences. Likewise, making art asks people to process their experiences in ways that are communal, shared, and public. As part of WPI’s Arts and Science Week, we invited art from our community, and we are delighted to showcase that art and celebrate the winners and runners up in 4 categories: visual arts, performance, craft-based arts, and creative writing.
