Four UT School of Art Students Receive Mid-South Sculpture Scholarships
The Mid-South Sculpture Alliance offers congratulations to 2022 Dianne Komminsk Scholarship Winners including four University of Tennessee School of Art students: Amalia F. Memingas, Francis Akosah, Kyle Cottier, and Sidney Sensabaugh.
The Dianne Komminsk Scholarship originated with a generous donation from Ohio Art patron and philanthropist, Dianne Komminsk. MSA is honored to continue her legacy of giving though the 2022 scholarship award. This year’s competition received thirty-seven applicants from twenty-six institutions nationwide. The work submitted was strong, diverse, and compelling. MSA is excited to announce this year’s winners! We look forward to hearing more from the winners at the Confab in Jackson, MS on October 15th, 2022.
The students will be presenting their artwork at the ConFab event in Jackson, Mississippi (hybrid online and in person) this Saturday October 15. This event will be moderated by one of our alumni Nyasha Madamombe, MFA Sculpture 2021, who was a past recipient of this same award:
UTK Sculpture has a strong record of award recipients, starting with Cassidy Frye, MFA Sculpture 2018, who is now serving on the MSA Board of Directors. Other UTK alumni who have won this scholarship award include Erica Mendoza, MFA Sculpture 2018; Holly Kelly, MFA Sculpture 2019; Reid Arowood, BFA Sculpture 2019; Michaela Leib, BA Sculpture 2020; Amanda Beasley, BA Sculpture 2019.
