DeKALB – Elizabeth Russo, a junior at Northern Illinois University, has won the design contest for this year’s ARTigras celebration.

Russo is an illustration major at NIU.

“I am thankful for the illustration program at NIU because of their constructive criticism, insight into professional commercial illustration, and the ability to prepare students for the job world, especially when it comes to deadlines,” Russo said. “I’m happy to have this opportunity to start showing my illustration to the public.” 

A joint effort by NIU and the city of DeKalb, ARTigras is a Celebration of the Arts – both in the DeKalb community as well as on the NIU campus. 

In addition to art exhibitions by student and community artists, this year’s ARTigras will include a costume contest and a Variety Show at the Egyptian Theatre featuring dance, theatrical and music performances.
