Thanks again for your application for the Trevor Coopersmith Urban Art Scholarship. Applications are still under review and the winner will be announced January 31st 2017. In the mean time, I received an incredible opportunity to exhibit my work at the Glass Box Gallery at the University of California, Santa Barbara from October 10-16 of this year. The curator for the show acknowledged my scholarship foundation and is encouraging me to reach out to applicants in hopes of displaying their work in the show. I hope to display some student work soon and they will receive credit towards the exhibition and will be able to place the exhibition on their resume. Hope to keep receiving more applications in the near future!

Starting to receive some entries!

As of now, two entries have been received. One entry from a photography student and another from a fashion merchandising major! Remember to include a portfolio if possible, it really improves application aesthetics and chances of award granted.

Thanks and looking forward to new entries, below is a piece to hopefully get some people brainstorming! This piece I created is painted on recycled mirror, and utilizes trash acquired on the beach as sand. The trash was also used to create texture along the wave crest. The trash promotes beach conservation awareness and is painted on mirror to truly reflect our impact as humans on our environment.
