This is the fifth year the museum has hosted this exhibition. Each year, Highland Community College offers a wide variety of scholarship opportunities designed to assist students in their studies. The Eduard Buss and Ferguson Fine Arts Merit scholarships are two such scholarship programs designed for full-time Fine Arts students. Students receiving an award in either of these two distinguished scholarship programs must meet specific criteria concerning studies in Music, Theatre, or Visual Arts. The students included in this exhibition curate the show by selecting their most successful works to be included, have written artist statements, and also prepare and document the art for display. Exhibition is located on second floor which is not wheelchair accessible. Free, but donations appreciated. (815-235-9755)
