As part of the Career Launcher, a jury comprised of faculty members, a graduate of the CRCP program, and the curatorial committee at Artscape Youngplace selected an artist from the group exhibition and award them a solo show in Fall 2018. In addition, an essay will be commissioned from the CRCP graduate to accompany the solo exhibition. Abigail Holt is the 2018 Winner of the Artscape Youngplace Photography Career Launcher.
