Associate Professor Dawson Kellogg designed and created the 2013 Columbus Award for the Columbus Chamber of Commerce.
This year marks the eighth that Kellogg has worked with the chamber on this project.
“I created a flat vase form with a rich, dense application of color,” Kellogg said. “The blending technique that I used always creates an abstract swirl of colors that might resemble something like raspberry ice cream. It is almost impossible to make two look exactly alike and so I like that each one is unique.”
The award is given each year by the chair of the Columbus Chamber to an individual who has enjoyed business success and provided outstanding community leadership. This year the award went to John P. McConnell, the chair and chief executive officer of Worthington Industries and majority owner of the Columbus Blue Jackets National Hockey League team.
In additions to the Columbus Award, each spring Kellogg creates four to five retiree gifts for the chamber. He also makes gifts for United Way of Central Columbus and is commissioned to create 18-25 gifts for Franklin University’s Leadership Symposium. He also recently made 27 awards for the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition, now in its 43rd year.
