The Olympics of Visual Arts is a creative, problem-solving event in which teams enter a long-term design solution and participate in a prompt. This year, the drawing category was mark making and the sculpture category was surrealism. Along with their entry, teams present a portfolio to showcase the research, planning and iterations that led to the final design.
