|Currie Scholars Program
2006 - Cole Hughes
"With the grant I was able to work with my color photography negatives, enlarging them to larger than life size. Also, the money was used to build an environment to exhibit the work. This was my first opportunity to work in an installation form. The Grant was amazing in regards to allowing me to venture into levels of professional art that I didn’t have the monetary means for."
2006 - Peter Johnston applied for a grant to purchase lighting and lenses necessary to produce a quality film that "challenges the ideas of truth or reality as represented by visual images, and the way our perception of a scene’s 'reality' is governed by a subconscious reaction to aesthetic differences." This film was premiered on Honor's Day 2007.
2006 - Kyla Crawford received $3000 as stipend for her work at the Center for Creative Arts (COCA) in St. Louis, Missouri. In addition to teaching classes for children in a variey of different media, she maintained the inventory and organization of two visual art classrooms, received and distributed supply orders from faculty, and prepared and oversaw supply budgets for the summer session. "This grant is intended to help students clearly define the term vocation and help them to find their calling in life. It is a wonderful opportunity and I would encourage and student who is interested to apply."
