BU student places second in Smithsonian Institution of Arts national competition

Congratulations to Leland Foster for placing second in Sustaining/Creating: A National Juried Exhibition for Emerging Artists with Disabilities, Ages 16-25! His piece “Restoring The Sublime” is up at the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center in Washington, D.C.

From Inside BU:

Leland Foster, a senior studying English at Binghamton University, recently placed second in a national art competition through the Smithsonian Institution of Arts.

Foster grew up in Portland, Maine, and came to Binghamton at the suggestion of his father, who was raised in the upstate area. Originally undecided about a major, Foster was drawn to the humanities — particularly English — but he also began to dabble with art during the summer between his sophomore and junior years.
