Museums of Los Gatos contest inspires young artists
San Jose Mercury News
07 February 2014
Danielle Chan, a freshman in the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley, won $5,000 for best in show at an annual art competition sponsored by the Museum of Los Gatos that challenges young artists to visually communicate a conversation through their artwork.
With the partnership of the Michael and Alyce Parsons Foundation, the museum opened up the competitive exhibit to all high schools in Santa Clara County, with a grand prize of $10,000. The competition prepares art students for the same process that professional artists undergo to win commissions and enter their works into exhibits and galleries.
"[The competition] took something that was a hobby for me and opened up new possibilities," Chan said. "It gave me the confidence I needed to explore careers in the design field."
The theme for 2013 was to express through art how technology has affected human life. Chan’s winning submission, titled "The Future is Encrypted," was a Chinese food takeout box sculpture, surrounded by paper fortune cookies and a ribbon of tape on which she typed critiques on the power, allure and hubris of high tech.
"At first it was a little bit intimidating," the 19-year-old said, "but once I got some ideas, it was a fun process."
