These are thoughts in an interview with Eloise Kim, recipient of our 2009 Annual Art Awards to Young Artists. Eloise, age seventeen, won a scholarship of $1,000—which allowed her to pay entry fees to competition, attend music camp at art festivals, build relationships with other passionate musicians and attend concerts where she learned from music masters. Her main goal is “to make a difference to someone out there—to bring someone’s emptiness to fulfillment.”
It’s not unusual to find artists like Eloise who are inspired to “focus on the possibilities…and to make a difference to someone’s life.” That’s the nature of an artist—to give of themselves and bring the gift of their talent to their community. In many ways, the Beaverton Arts & Culture Foundation helps artists realize their dreams to become successful and contribute to the community.
