2017 Scholarship Competition in Sculpture and Ceramic Arts

 

Monroe Isenberg - Mach XXIII

Each year the Arts Club sponsors a scholarship competition to recognize promising students specializing in a specific art form or medium—this year, sculpture and ceramics. The competition is open to college students ages 18-28 in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.  Serving as judges were local sculptors Charles Bergen and Thanasi Papapostolou and ceramicist Rebecca Ravenal. This year 11 entries were received, and the scholarships were awarded as follows:

 

  • Winner ($2,000): Monroe Isenberg, University of Maryland, for his entry titled “Mach XXIII”
  • Second Place ($1,000): Wing Hei Cheng, Virginia Commonwealth University,  for his entry titled “Be, Coming”
  • Honorable Mention ($750): Jacob Zimmerman, Towson University, for his entry titled “Mound”

The winners of the annual Arts Club scholarship awards will be recognized at a club dinner and their art will be on display  for 30 days.
