DRAWPROJECT | January 11th, 2016
Exhibition & Fund Raising Auction: 1/11/16
The DRAWPROJECT, hosted each year by our friends at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts, Valdosta GA, is an annual Drawing Invitational Exhibition that serves as a fundraising event for Valdosta State University Art students. Money raised from this event supports two prestigious scholarships benefiting outstanding Valdosta State University art students. The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts Scholarship is awarded annually to support a VSU junior art, design, or art education major for meritorious production in the classroom and a commitment to service within the community. The Danielle B. Harmon Student Merit Scholarship recognizes departmental art majors for superior classroom and studio performance.
Artists are invited from the local community and from across the nation to donate original works on paper. Historically, these works have represented diverse subjects, styles, and technical approaches, resulting in an excitingly varied, high quality exhibition with something for everyone. Each year since its inception, the DRAWPROJECT has grown in the number of participating artists, the number of exhibited works, and in funds raised for student scholarships. This charity exhibition event is rooted in the support of the many community sponsors, donors, patrons, and artists who, year after year, give so generously of their time, talent, and financial resources.
Additional Department of Art scholarship funds are used to support annual Freshman and Transfer Student Scholarships, as well as Departmental Merit Scholarships recognizing departmental majors for superior classroom and studio performance.
The DrawProject event is an ongoing, annual Art Project, coordinated and hosted by the VSU Department of Art and the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts.
