Two Hartford high school students who have demonstrated exceptional creative talents in the exhibition’s portfolio division will be selected to receive scholarships to the Hartford Art School’s Summer Portfolio Program, a month-long experience of diverse studio course offerings and museum visits designed to help students develop portfolios for college admissions.
The Wadsworth Atheneum has presented the Hartford Youth Art Renaissance in collaboration with Hartford Public Schools since 1980, and continues to foster future artistic leaders as part of the museum’s Community Engagement Initiative launched in 2008 with the goal of providing greater community access to the museum.
