During the past school year Arts students distinguished themselves in many creative ways, from winning awards and performing recitals, to building art installations and screening digital films.
This year's artists were deeply engaged in creating their own learning environments and in creating the blueprints for their futures as inventive entrepreneurs. As interns and tutors, collaborators and role models, they generously mentored each other and collectively raised each other's academic expectations. Here are some of those who made this year's Arts scene at UCSC bold and remarkable.
The Art Department's Irwin Scholarship recipients were honored with an end-of-the-year exhibition at the Sesnon Gallery which runs through June 16. This year's Irwin Scholars are: Patrick Appleby, Jessie Chernetsky, Heidi Cramer, Christopher Cravey, Noah Miska, Coleman Pritchard, Jose Rodriguez, Ethan Snyderman, Kati Teague, Lynora Valdez, Joanne Wang, and Dmitri Zurita.
Talent, passion, social responsibility, creativity—these are the hallmarks of this year's crop of students in the Arts.
