CAA Scholarship Award
To maintain ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, Collage Artists supports an annual scholarship for a deserving art student.
2015 Scholarship Winner: Victor Brazeau
Victor Brazeau is entering his senior year at California State University, Northridge.
His fascination with cast off and discarded items, and his interest in exploring the ideas of nostalgia, strength and fragility, are evident in his work. The sculptural assemblages Victor creates from salvaged materials and remnants of peoples' lives are both soulful and dynamic.
Victor's interests in art, technology and sculpture are combined in a proposal he is preparing for LACMA's 2016 Art & Technology Lab. His project is a hybrid of sculpture and user interface that is composed of the personal effects of people who have passed on. An online interface will allow friends and family to upload images into a digital collage that will be displayed over the sculpture. Victor will use the scholarship award to help fund the prototype used in his proposal.
