I thought I would give you all a good reason to stay inside a few more minutes on this hot Ohio day to enjoy a new blog posting!
The series that he has on display, “Vista Interna”, are sculpture like pieces that give viewers an opportunity to interact more with artwork. His pieces are wooden boxes with peepholes and old school cranks to make hands come to life on the inside of the boxes.

The AICUO Awards reception took place last night on the Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) campus. Activities began at 5:00 p.m. with the Student Panel Discussion in the R.W. Corns Building, then proceeded to the finalists' exhibition in the OWU Ross Art Museum.
The reception room boasted a showcase of the six finalists' works, ranging from 3-dimensional media to traditional oil painting, and a central table displaying the physical metal awards. After an interval of mingling and viewing the artwork, Todd Jones, president of AICUO, announced the various winners of the night, beginning with recognition for Caleb Boller, winner of the AICUO Sculpture Design Contest.
Next, Jones revealed the AICUO People's Choice Award winner to be Christopher Greathouse from Denison University. Each winner received a unique metal sculpture as a reward for their accomplishments, a legislative commendation from their hometown, and a prize package from our various in-kind sponsors.

The 2011 AICUO Awards have added a brand new exhibition to the program. This May, each of the six AICUO Award finalists will be showcasing their work in the Columbus Gallery Hop.
For those of you who don't know, the Gallery Hop is a monthly event in the Short North Arts District of Columbus, Ohio. Visitors from all around flock to see the new exhibits in Columbus' most successful galleries, which are open for extended hours. The sidewalks are usually bustling with people shopping around at the distinguished stores in the area, watching street performers, and going in and out of galleries, bars and restaurants.
Those who attend the Hop this May 7, 2011, will be able to see the six AICUO Award finalists' work in a Walking Exhibition of the Short North. Each of the artists have been paired up with a specific gallery to display their work as finalists in the AICUO Award.
Make sure to thank the participating galleries (listed below), who have kindly donated a portion of their space to help promote the success of these emerging artists.

As a junior at CCAD, Caleb studies Industrial Design and also focuses much of his energy on ceramics. Ever since a high school program that he took in his hometown of Roanoke, IN, Caleb has had an interest in all things 3-D. A renowned ceramics teacher, Bill Hunt, drew Caleb to the college, and a Silver Portfolio Scholastics scholarship and CCAD scholarship led him to decide that the central Ohio college was right for him.
For the next step of the Sculpture Design Competition, Caleb will be working with a professional local sculptor (TBA) to bring his pieces to life. Attend the 2011 AICUO Awards Reception on April 13 for the unveiling of the final sculptures!
You can view more of Caleb's work on his Coroflot account at http://www.coroflot.com/cboller.
