(April 30, 2014) -- Two UTSA art students, a 2013 master's in studio art degree recipient and a faculty member in the Department of Art and Art History are among a group of 115 finalists vying to capture the 2014 Hunting Art Prize. The winner of the $50,000 prize will be announced in Houston on May 3.

UTSA is represented by:

  • Jose Cardenas, undergraduate sculpture major
  • Raul Gonzalez, graduate student studio art major
  • Jane Liang, 2013 UTSA master’s degree in studio art
  • Jayne Lawrence, distinguished senior lecturer in studio art

A panel of jurors who reviewed the first round of painting and drawing submissions is meeting this month to determine the winner among the second round finalists representing more than 40 cities around the state.

The Hunting Art Prize, considered worldwide as one of the top art awards, was established in 1874 in the United Kingdom by Hunting PLC, an international oil services company that provides support solutions for the world’s largest oil and gas concerns.

Following the competition, Hunting PLC will present a charitable contribution on behalf of the competition and the participating artists to the nonprofit organization Patriot PAWS. The organization is dedicated to inspiring and restoring the physical and emotional independence of disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
