3-3-3 / CGAF Presents $15,000 Scholarship Awards to Local Students

Assisting with the selection process for this year’s awards is the Fund 4 Design & Art Education, an organization created and maintained by retired arts educators across the County. The organization has assisted the Arts Festival in selecting some of Miami-Dade’s best arts students since 2013.
 The upcoming exhibition, Mapping the Heart, features solo artist Aimee Perez, a Cuban-American mixed-media artist and sculptor whose work can be found in many private collections across the United States and Mexico and in permanent collections, such as the Florida International University Honors College Collection.
 Mapping the Heart by Aimee Perez, will run now through June 24. Both the scholarship award presentation and exhibition opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 7 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. The Gallery @ CGAF is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For more information about the Gallery @ CGAF, please visit
