This year the Community Foundation of West Texas awarded the Lubbock Art Association Scholarship to Koby Griggs, a senior at Monterey High School. Koby was one of sixteen applicants for this scholarship that is given to a Lubbock County senior who plan to pursue art education at the post-secondary level.

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.
All the artwork submitted is on display at Tornado Gallery in Lubbock through April 22, 2016. Below are additional art pieces submitted for consideration of the scholarship.
