The West Hartford Art League is offering a $1,200 scholarship to a high school senior in the greater Hartford area who will be continuing their education as an art major at an accredited university or art school in the fall of 2014. The Louis Pollock Art Scholarship was created by a donation from the estate of Louis H. Pollack, a longtime member of the West Hartford Art League, and former teacher at Conard High School, who died in March 1994.
The scholarship is awarded to a student entering their first year of an art program at a university or college who demonstrate both financial need and outstanding visual ability. This scholarship is open to all 2014 graduating high school seniors in one of the 32 towns that compose the Capital region of Greater Hartford. Criteria and deadlines for the scholarship applications can be found on the Art Leagues website at http://westhartfordart.org/scholarships/
“The West Hartford Art League has been offering instruction in the visual arts since 1934, and we’re very grateful to Louis Pollock for allowing us to continue our mission 'to educate and inspire' as we encourage students to pursue a career in the visual arts,” said Executive Director Roxanne Stachelek.
The West Hartford Art League will be celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2014. It occupies three historic buildings in the Buena Vista neighborhood where it produces monthly exhibits of local and regional artists, as well as four session of classes on an annual basis for all levels and types of artists.
