The (Untitled) Art Show co-hosted by the BlotShop Collective was a huge success, thanks to all of you!
We showcased 15+ artists (thanks for applying and participating), had 4 professional artists for our panel (huge thanks to Crespo Arts, Murrz, Zero Productivity, and Paul Fresha) and awarded the following scholarships.
Freshman Scholarship ($1,000) - Hien Nguyen
Undergrad Scholarship (1,000) - Fernando Garcia
Grad Scholarship ($1,000) - Xavier Magaña
Honorary Scholarship ($2,600) - Pedro Angel
Each of these students showed their passion for their creative field through their project, essays, and expressed their need for financial aid.
Pedro Angel is the reason why I started Support Creativity in the first place. When I became his mentor back in 2009 I did not have the funds to give him the scholarships that he needed for college. Now we were finally able to give the extra boost he needed to finish school.
We will be posting more photos and artwork from the event, but for now, check out the scholarship recipient's work below.

I would like to thank the BlotShop Collective for helping make the Untitled Art Show a huge success. I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Thanks to all of the Guardians of Creativity, donors, volunteers, sponsors, friends, and family who have supporting me with this movement. Every year we grow, and it would not be possible without your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
