Fine Arts Creativity Awards at Palm Springs Art Museum

The 2010 FINE ARTS CREATIVITY AWARD AND SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM at the Palm Springs Art Museum was once again a rewarding experience for DATA Di students.

Congratulations to the following!

Markie Hackwith
Georgia Fogelson College Scholarship

Spencer McQuinn
Light Painting
Honorable Mention for Creative Use of Media

"The Fine Arts Creativity Awards Program was established to give young and emerging artists the opportunity to participate in a juried exhibition and to have their artwork displayed in the museum galleries in a professional manner. Each year the variety of artwork submitted and the statements they make are unique and thought-provoking. These artists express ideas that are always personal yet at the same time speak to wider social issues that impact their lives.

Since 1991, over 800 young artists have exhibited here at the museum. Many of these students have gone on to careers in the arts and the museum is proud to have been an early source of encouragement."
