Congratulations to Tracy Frein for his painting Being Eleven

winning the $5,000 Best of Show and CIPPY Award.

Being Eleven is about the “Age of Anxiety” and how it is more upon us than ever. 

This drawing is about the fragmentation of an eleven-year old’s imagination, crying out in a world that is locked in a desolate vault. When anxiety becomes so high that it interferes with one’s ability to function, then it is called an anxiety disorder, and in childhood and adolescence the prevalence of anxiety disorders is rising and is currently higher than that of all other mental disorders.
