Funding Future Artists is an annual benefit facilitated by Friends of Art (FOA) at Columbus State University. Our organization provides supplemental financial support to the Department of Art, and participates in building the CSU art program to one of the preeminent programs in the Southeast.
The goal for Funding Future Artists is to provide as many full-time scholarships as possible.
Funding Future Artists is the scholarship fund established by the Friends of Art (FOA) at Columbus State University. Our inaugural benefit exhibition will feature 100 works of art donated by CSU community artists. Each $300 ticket grants the ticket holder one work of art. Our fundraising goal is to provide three full-tuition scholarships to talented students from across the globe!
All works will be displayed in Highland Galerie for a limited public in-person viewing April 6-24.
Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10-4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 - 2 p.m.
The Virtual Benefit will take place April 22-24, 2021.
