A current William Woods University art student and an alumnus took
their talents to the Jefferson City sidewalks recently, winning prizes for
their chalk drawings.
 
They participated in the chalk painting competition portion of the Capital
Jazzfest and Street
Art Fair Sept. 17 in
Memorial Park.
 
Ashleigh Talbert, a
freshman art major
from Jefferson City,
won frst place in the
college division for
her drawing of Miles
Davis.
Adam Dresden, a 2009 art education
graduate from Granite City, Ill. re-
ceived second place. Dresden attends
graduate school at Southern Illinois
University-Edwardsville.
 
The chalk drawings were done
directly on the pavement - just like
graffti, and each artist was given
a 4 x 6-foot area. The results were
judged on aesthetics, execution,
creativity and complexity.
William Woods University is one
of the top 100 universities in the
Midwest, according to the 2011
edition of Best Colleges by U.S.
News Media Group.
 
“This ranking solidifes William
Woods University’s position
among the leading universities
in the region,” Dr. Jahnae H.
Barnett, WWU president said.
“This ranking is excellent news
for our stakeholders, particularly
our alumni and students, as the
value of their educational invest-
ment continues to increase. I am
delighted that William Woods is
receiving the recognition it richly
deserves.”

1,400 schools nationwide, are
