Annually the Lubbock Area Foundation awards a scholarship to an exceptional Lubbock County high school art student as part of the Lubbock Art Association scholarship. Founded in 1951, the Lubbock Art Association was a community based visual arts organization that played an active role in promoting the fine arts and art education in the South Plains region until its dissolution in 2003. In furthering the Association’s efforts to strengthen the importance of the fine arts in this region for artists and art lovers, the Lubbock Art Association Scholarship Fund awards are made to talented young artists so they may continue their art education at the post-secondary level.
Each student who applied for this award was invited to show up to three pieces of their art at the Tornado Gallery courtesy of Larry Simmons, gallery co-owner. Their art was showcased as a part of the May First Friday Art Trail and will be displayed through the month of May.
Congratulations to Justice Pointer from Cooper High School for being chosen as this year’s scholarship recipient.
