Art Maui 2007 Scholarship Awards

The Art Maui Board of Directors is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2007 Art Maui scholarship awards. Cianna Valley of Baldwin High School, taught by Janet Sato, and Leif Estrada of Maui High School, under the instruction of Robin Curammeng, were each awarded $1,000 scholarships. Awards of $500 were given to Bristol Dunlap and Rina Makabe, both of King Keakaulike High School and taught by Melanie Seaton.

These winners were chosen from eleven applicants, all Maui County high school seniors pursuing further education in the visual fine arts. Scholarship guidelines required applicants to be seniors graduating from any high school venue in Maui County, including private, charter and home school, in the spring of 2007, who are currently enrolled in Advanced Placement, or Independent Study visual arts classes. Applicants were asked to submit 5 examples of their work, a statement about the work, a letter of recommendation from an instructor familiar with their work, and a high school transcript and profile showing their commitment for future education plans in the visual arts. Submitting student artists showed creativity, excellence and hard work in preparing their applications. The scholarship committee had a difficult time in selecting the awardees and commends all the students and teachers for their amazing talent and focus, originality, use of media, technique and sophistication in concept development.


Art Maui would like to thank the Maui community for their generous contributions in supporting Art Maui 2007. Some people made tax-deductible donations to the scholarship fund, while others volunteered their time to help with receiving or returning artworks and sitting the exhibition in the gallery...Mahalo nui! We also appreciate the patrons who purchased 32 of the 98 pieces in the exhibit. Thank you to everyone that took time to view the show, and thank you to the staff of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center If you’d like to be involved in Art Maui 2008, the 30th Annual Exhibition, we need your help.
