We support our scholarship applicants by helping them
make connections and publicizing their work. An advisory team
periodically reviews applicants projects to provide input. SAKS FIFTH
AVENUE generously donated a window display featuring 6 pieces of artwork
by one scholarship applicant; an exhibit featuring the work of one
applicant was held in a new gallery location; a public exhibit in the
lobby of the HATCH & PARENT LAW FIRM on State Street featured the work
of other applicants, and RALPHS GROCERY COMPANY assisted with the recent
Children’s Fiesta Art Competition.
We have plans to support this growing need throughout
the community. In July 2000 we began providing funding for workshops for
dancers age 8 and up; we have offered a new award to S.B. City College
Digital Arts Program for the Best Video of Performing Artist; and we
plan to support audience development in 2003 - by helping students to
attend and critique performances by nationally known artists.
