FOLLOW UP: Mia Tavonatti's mother passed away earlier in the day, hours before she was awarded 1st Place in ArtPrize for her entry Crucifixion. The following video is her talking about her mom's passing and knowing that her mom was there with her last night when she took home 1st Place in ArtPrize!  She also mentions another ArtPrize Juried Winner: Caroline Young of Chicago, Ill. for  "Remember: Replay: Repeat" -- Time-based work in Performance/Film/Video Category.

Mia mentions that she felt like she received confirmation that her mother was there when Carolyn Young won for that video.  This whole thing has such a strong, spiritual, God feel to it.  Does it for you?
