2018 Lakewood Arts Festival Scholarship Winner - Elyza Mihalski

Elyza Mihalski, Scholarship Recipient.

Elyza Mihalski is chosen as recipient of the 2018 Lakewood Arts Festival Scholarship of $4,000.

Elyza is a 2018 graduate of Lakewood High School who will study fine art at the Cleveland Institute of Art this fall. Regarding her work, she said, "Becoming a studied and well-trained artist means that I will have the tools to not only create meaningful and visually appealing art, but to give something to be proud of and to give the world something to enjoy." Work from Elyza's portfolio of paintings and drawings will be on display in Lakewood Public Library during the festival through early August.

The Lakewood Arts Festival awards a scholarship each year to a deserving high school graduate who resides in Lakewood and is pursuing a degree in the arts. More than 70 scholarships have been awarded since the Festival began in 1981. This year the Lakewood Arts Festival Scholarship is generously funded by supporters for the arts in our community. Proceeds from the food vendor/sponsors also goes directly to the scholarship fund.
