Together with the Faculty of Design and Art at the University of Wuppertal, under the expert guidance of art professor Katja Pfeiffer, the Coroplast Group once again organized the CoroArt Art Award this year. This event, now in its seventh year, honors young up-and-coming artists who create outstanding creative works from our products.
With this award, the Coroplast Group actively promotes budding artists and offers them a platform for presenting their works. We also purchase many of the works created to display them permanently at our headquarters in Wuppertal and offer our employees an inspiring environment.
This year, around 30 students took part in the competition and presented their ideas on the theme of "stability and change". As usual, the students were able to choose from the Coroplast Group's wide range of adhesive tapes and cables for their works. The best works were recognized and awarded prizes by a top-class jury consisting of (from left to right) Dr. Roland Mönig (Von der Heydt Museum), Constanze Krieger (Coroplast Group), Marc Kox and Prof. Katja Pfeiffer (Bergische Universität Wuppertal) and Natalie Mekelburger (Coroplast Group).
The jurors were faced with a major task this year, as they were impressed by the consistently very high quality and diversity of the work submitted. In the end, the jury decided to award one 1st place and three 2nd places. The lucky winners are:
The festive conclusion of this year's competition took place on the premises of the University of Wuppertal. After the award ceremony, the Coroplast Group employees, together with the students, ended the evening in a relaxed atmosphere. The winners also gave short interviews and reported on the creation of their works.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all students who participated and submitted outstanding works. The lively participation and the creative exchange with artists and guests were again a wonderful experience. We are already looking forward to the eighth edition of the CoroArt Art Award.
