Awards to be presented at Arts Festival Gallery

Marking over 25 years of scholarship support for talented art students in Miami-Dade County, the Coconut Grove Arts & Historical Association Scholarship Program has announced $20,000 in scholarship awards for the 2017 school year. Receiving scholarships of $1,000 each are 20 graduating seniors from five of Miami-Dade County’s public magnet arts high schools.

The awards will be presented by members of the board of the Coconut Grove Arts & Historical Association – producers of the nonprofit Coconut Grove Arts Festival – on Saturday, May 6 at 7 pm. The presentation will take place at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival Gallery during the opening reception of an exhibition that will showcase the works of this year’s Scholarship recipients.  

Assisting with the selection process for this year’s awards is the Fund 4 Design & Art Education, an organization created and maintained by retired arts educators across the County. The organization has assisted the Arts Festival in selecting some of Miami-Dade’s best arts students since 2013. 

The scholarship award presentation will be held from 7  to 10 pm, and is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
