On view through October 2013
 

Inpsired by the adjacency of the site to a major sports complex, Phoenix-based artist Christopher Jagmin turns the trditional trophy case on its ear. Although the storefront appears to be  what one would expect from a trophy case, upon closer inspection, the viewer finds phrases like "Best friend" and "Most reliable". Who received these unique awards and why?

 

Jagmin's trophy case can be viewed as the result of any person's life path being scattered with awards for the things not usually celebrated in this way. While living a life, we often dismiss our achievements over time. On our way to achieve the next benchmark, we might forget to congratulate ourselves for a job well-done. Sometimes we not even aware that we have achieved something special.
