Two of the eight Associate Artists selected by Mr. Cotton to participate in the residency are UCF students , Gabe Cortese and Annette Tojar. Not only is this an amazing opportunity for these two emerging artists, it is also exciting that Mr. Cotton will visit UCF and speak about his work and career. Mr. Cotton is an important and well known artist living and working in New Your City. His paintings are collected by major museums and celebrities such as Katy Perry for whom he designed her California Gurls video.
