Le’Andra LeSeur was awarded the $200,000 Juried Grand Prize for her work “brown, carmine, and blue.” She shared her story with us about how the idea for her work came to life, learning from cycles of pain and joy, leaning into vulnerability, and what she wished she could tell herself ten years ago.

“Whoever you are, own it and take responsibility for that and be passionate for that, and anyone who is out there struggling to figure out who they are, who you are on the inside, that identity, let that shine and let that show. Because if someone doesn’t accept that, that’s on them, that’s not on you.”
