CalArts partnered with Chiquita Canyon for their sixth annual Found Art Scholarship Program and is set to announce the recipients of more than $8,000 in scholarships at a gallery exhibition featuring student artist creations.
“This Found Art scholarship program with CalArts is a great way to artistically demonstrate the reuse of materials that have been discarded by society,” said Mike Dean of Chiquita Canyon. “Every year, we’re so impressed with the creativity expressed by students.”
Chiquita Canyon’s Found Art Scholarship Program was designed to demonstrate the unique artistic creativity of CalArts students, according to officials.
The competition, now in its sixth year, challenges students to create a piece of art utilizing items found items from Chiquita — students interested in entering the competition had the chance to visit the landfill to select items to use in their works.
