Juror of Selection and Awards: 

Alim SmithAlim Smith is a Delaware born interdisciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited in American art galleries primarily on the east coast. His artistic process expands beyond a singular medium due to several years of applied studies in Visual Art, Communicative Arts as well as Photography. Smith’s creative exploration stems from experiences and events within his culture, applying a variety of ideas based on his knowledge of self and understanding of others.
Smith entered middle school at Cab Calloway School of the Arts in Wilmington, where he developed a passion for art and discovered a sense of focus that pushed him to constantly create without distraction. He is devoted to creating art that is heavily inspired by entertainment (primarily music and comedy), women and black culture. Smith says the presence of black culture in his work serves as a form of self-expression and education.https://yesterdaynite.com/bio
