Our Art of the City Scholarship seeks to encourage and empower artists of all disciplines to submit an original piece of art around the year's chosen theme.
We are honoured to have the opportunity to support and showcase our local Creatives from Semiahmoo Secondary and Earl Marriott Secondary School, and we look forward to announcing the 2024 Art of the City Scholarship theme later this year!
We are so inspired by the creativity, interpretation and conceptualization of this year’s theme, HOPE. From poems to embroidery, sculptures to paintings, the 2023 Creatives demonstrated exceptional artistic talent and imagination.
A progression from the 2022 theme UNITY, we are inspired by the many interpretations of HOPE through original art pieces. The creatives have taken HOPE and explored, defined and deconstructed it.
We offer our sincerest congratulations to the 2023 Art of the City Scholarship Creatives, and wish them all the best in their future artistic endeavours!
We are so proud to have launched our Art of the City Scholarship in 2022. For our premiering year's theme, we chose: UNITY.
From fashion to film, and everything in between, each submission was an incredible journey as Semiahmoo Secondary's students explored, deconstructed and demonstrated the concept of UNITY and what it means to them.
We are incredibly grateful for every submission received in our inaugural year and we couldn't be more proud of our fellow creatives.
2023 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!
Whether through its definition or antithesis, our 2023 Creatives defined, deconstructed and reconstructed the meaning of HOPE. We’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to feature their pieces and wish them all the best as they continue their creative journeys.
2022 ARTIST FEATURES
Through incredible works of art, our 2022 creatives introspected and challenged the notions of what UNITY means to them. For their trust and confidence in sharing their pieces, we are so grateful.
