The work of four Illustration students from the University of the Arts was selected by a jury of their professional peers to be exhibited at the Museum of American Illustration in New York as part of the Society of Illustrators' annual Student Scholarship Competition. Only 205 works were selected out of 7,000 entries submitted by students of top Illustration programs from around the country.
University of the Arts Illustration junior Elizabeth Bobzin and seniors Philip Bartel, Lindsay Beach and Nina Goffi will have their original artwork on display at the Museum May 4 - 28 and will be honored at an opening reception on May 6.
The Society of Illustrators, as well as various other generous private and corporate donors, grant over $50,000 in scholarships to the best students featured in the competition. In the last 30 years, the Society has awarded over $1,500,000 to deserving students through this competition, which has opened the door for many top professionals in the field.
Founded in 1901, the Society's mission is to promote the art of illustration, to appreciate its history and evolving nature through exhibitions, lectures and education, and to contribute the service of its members to the welfare of the community at large.
