Students will be able to talk to attendees about how the scholarships have helped them beyond just financing school, Bennett said.

There will be several students helping with the night including the three students whose work will be showcased.

One student is Eric Clark, a graduate student with a focus in 3-dimensional art, who hopes his work is showcased for the evening of the arts.

Clark hopes his artwork will be showcased for attendees to experience his pieces and learn more about his talent.

“It’s always nice to have a dialogue with people looking at your work, and I especially enjoy it when people don’t know it’s my work,” Clark said. “I’ll start to have a conversation with someone to see what they really think. Maybe an outsider who doesn’t have a real opinion about art at all. It’s really interesting to hear their perspective.”

Clark said he believes interaction with the attendees is a great asset for this event. The attendees will be able to learn more about the art world then what they may have previously known, Clark said.

“You’re opening the door for people to learn more about art,” Clark said. “Which, I think, as in academia, that’s what we’re here to do, literally teach people about art. That is what I think is important.”
