Cressey Arts Grant Receives Impressive Submissions Depicting Future of Coquitlam

We are pleased to report the success of our inaugural Cressey Arts Grant – a bursary program offered to grade 11 and 12 secondary students. Between November 30 – March 15, 2013, we received an overwhelming response from senior students and faculty within School District #43.

To celebrate the next phase of our successful Metropolitan Residence MThree, this year’s application asked students to create an original work of art depicting their vision of the “Future of Coquitlam”. We were extremely impressed by the level of quality and talent exhibited in all submissions. Students used a variety of materials to produce their interpretations, ranging from paint to digital art to video.

We would like to personally thank all those who applied. We are currently reviewing applications and will notify finalists after April 15th, 2013. A grand prize of $3,000 and four secondary honorariums of $500 will be awarded to finalists at a special awards ceremony on Thursday, May 16th, 2013.

*Applications for the 2013 Cressey Arts Grant are now closed.
