He continues, “It’s a little bit of a snapshot, in certain ways, of what’s happening within the College.” The Post and Courier calls the Young Contemporaries exhibit, “One of the highlights of the year.” This year’s entries are sure to impress.

Jordan had two pieces selected this year: Madonna Adoring the Sleeping Heinz (painting), and Black Totem (sculpture).
