Inka Essenhigh Awarded CCAD 2014 Alumni Award for Excellence
Inka Essenhigh was awarded the 2014 Joseph V. Canzani Alumni Award for Excellence by her alma mater Columbus College of Art & Design on September 5, 2014. “I’m from Columbus, and I often joke that it’s the most exotic thing about me,” says the artist. “With that [upbringing] comes a work ethic, a craft (the ability to draw), and an appreciation for what’s come before—all things that were reinforced at CCAD.”
“Her consistent exhibition record suggests a strong work ethic,” said Fine Arts professor Tim Rietenbach, who nominated Essenhigh for the award. Essenhigh’s work will be on display in CCAD’s Canzani Gallery through October 10.
