There were so many people at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival Gallery on Saturday night, that it was almost claustrophobic, but I love to see so many people at an event. Aimee Perez was the featured artist this month, but the main crowds were there for the handing out of scholarships to students from various county schools. 12 graduating seniors each received $1000 each from the Arts Festival Gallery.

It was a fun night, lots of drinks, food and friends. The full list of scholarship recipients is here.
