IF THE SHOE FITS... The 2022 Judith Hendler Design Awards presented in partnership with the Huntington Beach Art Center is a celebration of sustainable art, fashion and design. Award winners and honorable mentions made the shoe motif or design central to the artwork in an unusual and interesting way.
Fashion jewelry designer, Judith Hendler, challenged enrolled Community College students in any of the visual art or crafts design departments and current HBAC members to define core sustainability concepts of reduce, reuse and repurpose within their own practices.
ELIGIBILITY: Participation was open to enrolled Southern California Community College students in the fashion, visual arts or crafts (design, painting, woodworking, sculpture, ceramics) departments with a faculty sponsor and to Huntington Beach Art Center (HBAC) members 18 years of age and older.
AWARDS: Two $500.00 cash prize awards for Best in Show (Community College Student and HBAC Member categories) and notable mentions presented at the exhibition opening on May 7, 2022.
