SBCC art students awarded scholarships at annual student exhibition

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (April 28, 2022) — The Art Department at Santa Barbara City College is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-2022 scholarship awards in recognition of exceptional performance and dedication in the arts.

Winni Y. Simon received the Adrian “Ozz” Osborne Memorial Art Scholarship; the Frederick and Ursula Perl Endowed Art Scholarship went to Kate L. Yiu; Bryana J. Hockman was awarded the Mary D. Thompson Studio Art Scholarship; and Maritza Alvarado was honored with the Ventura Potters Guild Award in Ceramics.
In addition to the scholarships that the SBCC Foundation oversees, is a President’s Purchase award, a precedent set by past presidents of the college to use one of the discretionary funds at the Foundation to purchase a work of student art. While viewing the exhibition, Interim Superintendent/President Dr. Kindred Murillo selected two small pieces this year: “Line” by Winni Simon and “Frida” by Moa Cronheden.
