Each year the Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art Committee selects a scholarship winner. We are always impressed by the high quality of the applicants, and a decision is never easy. After careful discussion and consideration, we are honored to announce Violet Reetz as this year's recipient.
Violet will be attending either Indiana University in Bloomington, IN or DePaul University in Chicago, IL fall after graduating from the Fine Arts Academy at Madison Consolidated High School. She plans to major in visual arts education to become an art teacher to inspire and educate future generations about the importance of creativity and the arts to our world. She submitted a selection of her artwork for consideration, as can be seen below. We, the committee, wish her well in her future.
