Lansing Art Gallery’s 28th Annual Art Scholarship Alert runs through April 27 The exhibition displays nearly 100 works of art from across Mid-Michigan. Art Scholarship Alert is a juried art exhibition and scholarship competition for grades 9 through 12. The program is designed to give recognition and financial assistance for outstanding art students, encourage artistic growth and to provide an opportunity to participate as artists in a professional setting. Students are required to submit a portfolio of five original works of art to be juried by a team of professional artists and educators. Young artists learn commitment to a goal and gain self-confidence as they aspire to artistic excellence. Their successes establish them as significant role models for younger students. Since 1984, Art Scholarship Alert has awarded over $99,300 to young artists to help further their creative endeavors. In addition to the portfolio competition, students at the senior level may apply for the annual $1,000 Sara Jane Venable Scholarship. Expanded in 2011 to include mid-Michigan, Art Scholarship Alert offers entry to students living in 10 counties: Ingham, Clinton, Eaton, Ionia, Shiawassee, Barry, Livingston, Calhoun and Jackson. This expansion offers opportunities to over 50 school districts.
