Painting with a Purpose

Painting with a Purpose

The School of Allied Health Professions recently hosted Painting with a Purpose 2.0: Collegiate Smackdown, a live painting event that benefits the school of Allied Health. Guests were invited to walk around and talk with the artists as they completed their canvases, vote and bid on their favorite pieces. Text votes were compiled to select a People's Choice winner and the artist with the highest bid was named the 2017 Champion. Rebekah Gueho, a second year physical therapy student won both awards! Watch this video for more from the event and check out the photos on Facebook.
