OTTUMWA — Sheridan Klinginsmith, an Indian Hills Community College student from Centerville, is the winner of the IHCC Board of Trustees’ Annual Art Award.
Klinginsmith’s painting, titled “Turn Your Head,” was chosen from among 10 pieces that were judged by a special committee. She told board members at this week’s regular meeting that she painted the winning artwork “in the spur of the moment” during a snow day this past winter. Klinginsmith finished her freshman year at Indian Hills this spring and said after graduating from IHCC she hopes to transfer to the University of Iowa and eventually become an elementary school teacher.
Klinginsmith received a monetary award from the board for her painting, which can be viewed in the Indian Hills Art Gallery, located in the library on the Ottumwa campus.
