Giving to Art

"Print media is a challenging yet thrilling form of making visual art, but it is also an expensive media to pursue. The art department grants and scholarships such as the Irwin and Carrillo have helped me accomplish large scale projects and further develop my understanding of the media through practice and experimentation, that would have otherwise not been possible. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to pursue expensive projects with their help. The funding has helped me develop as an artist and given me a desire to reach farther and work harder in my artistic practice." - Caetano Santos

Philanthropy changes lives, helping students like Caetano excel in their creativity, research, and education.
