Now in its second year, the "Art Blooms" exhibit features more than 300 pieces of art representing graphic design, two- and three-dimensional design, drawing, watercolor, applied design and crafts, digital drawing and painting. Co-hosted by the Cuyamaca Student Fine Art Club, the May 1 award ceremony drew about 250 attendees who saw 24 awards and scholarships totaling $2,100 presented. Nine honorable mention awards were also given.
The exhibition, which continues through May 17, involved 200 students, 19 faculty members and one staff member from three departments: Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Ornamental Horticulture.
A portion of art sales proceeds benefit the Cuyamaca College Fine Art Trust Fund.
