Each year, the Dayton Art Institute offers four regional college art majors a chance at something big — to exhibit their artwork as a Yeck College Artist Fellow at the prestigious venue.

This year’s scholarship winners were Eva Lewis and Lucas Underwood Bergeron from Wright State University, Alexander Belmonte Paat from Cedarville University and Lauren Reis, a recent graduate of Miami University.

“The 2016-2017 College Artist Fellows were selected through a portfolio review and a formal interview process,” said DAI museum educator for school programs Christine Fleming. “The four fellows were carefully chosen based on their skill with a variety of media, as well as their range of subject matter.”
