Three alumni of TC’s Arts and Administration program are winners of a video contest held by Americans for the Arts, a leading nonprofit, in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

Starting Artists, Inc., founded and directed by Marisa Catalina Casey (M.A., ’10) to provide under-served youth with hands-on training in the arts and entrepreneurship, won the grand prize for “Art Is.” The segment was shown repeatedly on the MTV big screen in Times Square in late October.

The winner of the “Over 18” category was TC’s Student Advocates for the Arts, a grassroots student organization focused on public policy affecting the arts, for “Why You Need to Be An Arts Advocate.” The video was produced by Jonathan Lewis (M.A., ’10) and Daria Pennington (M.A., ’10) in conjunction with Sweet Victory Entertainment.

The winning videos can be viewed at http://bit.ly/onHg4.
