West is excited for the public to see the finalists and for the participating artists to see the public. “As an artist, being able to share their work and experience viewers responses to their work is a huge part of creative expression,” she adds. “I feel strongly that experiencing art brings the creative process full circle, influencing both the artist and the viewer.”
