Applications are now being accepted for the Ginny Wright Scholarship. The Darien Arts Center awards this $2,000 scholarship to a high school senior in Darien who will continue their study of the visual arts or design in college. It is not necessary that the student be declaring art as a major at this point, as long as he or she plans to take art courses. The award is given in memory of Virginia Wright, a talented artist, dedicated volunteer and generous benefactor. Completion of application, including portfolio, artist's letter and a letter of support must be received by March 25, 2022. This year, all submissions will be digital. A winner will be announced later this spring and a check will follow by mail. For application forms and more information, visit darienarts.org. For questions, call the DAC office at (203) 655-8683 or email emily@darienarts.org.
