LA PLUME — A Keystone College student won two ADDY awards at the recent American Advertising Awards national competition in Chicago.
Lindsey Lockwood, of Milford, won a gold Student ADDY Award and a Mosaic ADDY Award for her series of illustrations, entitled “Presidential Quotes.” The ADDYs are considered the advertising industry’s most prestigious awards.
Lockwood won the gold Student ADDY for the originality and creativity of her work while the Mosaic ADDY recognized her piece for its “spirit of diversity and inclusion.” A visual art major with a concentration in graphic design and print media, and a minor in business, Lockwood will begin her senior year at Keystone in the fall.
Her work is a linocut, which is art created by carving a design in a piece of linoleum. She created the piece as an honors project for a printmaking class taught by Keystone Professor Sally Tosti. Lockwood created portraits of prior presidents spanning the nation’s history and political spectrum: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. She paired the portraits with documented and controversial quotes from Donald Trump, most made during his presidential candidacy and one from years earlier which was first reported during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Lockwood credited members of the Keystone art faculty, particularly Professor Tosti, Professor David Porter, and Professor Drake Gomez for encouraging her to apply for the rigorous ADDY competition.
