The scholarship 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 5 at 7 pm. The presentation will take place during the opening reception of the First Impressions exhibition that will showcase the works of this year’s Scholarship recipients as part of the arts festival’s Gallery @ CGAF exhibition series. The Gallery @ CGAF is located at 3390 Mary Street in Mayfair-in-the-Grove.
Scholarship was created in 2018 in Memory of Jae Sweeny-Lardner, a young, brilliant life gone too soon. Jae attended NWSA, and with this scholarship, they honor her memory and carry her legacy of the appreciation and love of art forward to future generations of young, talented artists.
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 is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
