Six students will be performing or showing their art at auditions Sunday, April 15, for three scholarships to be awarded by the Duluth Fine Arts League.
DFAL is providing three art scholarships -- two for $1,500 each and one for $1,000 -- to seniors who attend Duluth High School or who are homeschooled in Duluth. Recipients must live in Duluth. This is an increase from two $1,000 scholarships presented for each of the past two years totaling $4,000.
There are four seniors competing in music and two in visual arts, Mary Buck, chair of the DFAL scholarship program, reported.
The auditions, which are open to the public, will run from 2 to 5 p.m. at in Duluth.
Duluth Mayor Nancy Harris, founder and president of DFAL, will emcee the auditions. The three scholarship recipients will be selected at the conclusion of the audition by a panel of distinguished judges.
DFAL was founded in 2008 to promote the arts in Duluth. Scholarship funds are generated through the annual Arts at Twilight event in July.
