LET’S HONOR West County’s CALIFORNIA ARTS SCHOLARS:

On Sunday, September 17, from 3:00-4:30pm, Celebrating Culture & Community will honor West County’s California Arts Scholars at a reception in the El Cerrito Veterans’ Hall (6401 Stockton St., one block off of San Pablo Ave.  This event, which is free and open to the public, is being co-sponsored by the Richmond Arts & Cultural Commission.

Each year, the California State Summer School for the Arts chooses several young people from every county in California to be designated a California Arts Scholar.  Competition for this award is open to all students in high school and junior high/middle school, and can be quite stiff. 

The reward is both prestige and a four-week long CalArts arts camp in southern California.  Many of the young artists who are selected to attend this camp report that it provides lots of inspiration, and significant confidence in the value of the arts and in their abilities as artists.

This year, of the 12 young people selected from Contra Costa County, five come from West County.  These include four first-time winners (Jason Merritt, Jeff Peer, Kimberly Williams and Erin Wooland), along with one repeat winner (Candace Wong).  Two of the winners come from El Cerrito, one from El Sobrante, and one each from Rodeo and Kensington.

.As part of the reception and celebration, these young California Arts Scholars winners will be invited to give a short presentation in his/her art form, ranging from theater to poetry to visual arts to animation


Run dates: 2000-09-01 - 2000-09-17
