Visual arts scholarships available

WATERLOO — Friends of the Art Center are accepting applications for the Raymond T. Forsberg and Marilyn Ann Hurley Memorial Scholarships, both in the amount of $1,000.

These scholarships are available to graduating seniors attending high school within a 35-mile radius of Waterloo who are planning to pursue a post-secondary degree in the visual arts (art education, graphic design/graphic communications, fine arts, photography, etc.). A panel of art professionals will select scholarship winners based on students’ application, essay, portfolio, transcript, SAT/ACT scores and letters of recommendation.

All application materials are due by 5 p.m. April 14. Two scholarship recipients will be notified and honored with a reception in May.

Companion exhibits at the Waterloo Center for the Arts feature a collection of portraits of African American suffrage and civil rights heroines by Cedar Rapids artist Kathy Shumacher and curated pieces by African American artists from the WCA permanent collection. On display through March 19, 2023.
