Julia Chepke '11 Wins Arts Prize Scholarship

Julia Chepke, a fourth-year fiber and material studies major at CIA, was awarded the 2010 John Paul Miller Scholarship from the Cleveland Arts Prize.

Julia Chepke '11 Wins Arts Prize Scholarship

The Cleveland Institute of Art congratulates fiber and material studies major Julia Chepke ’11, who has received the 2010 John Paul Miller Scholarship in the Visual Arts from the Cleveland Arts Prize.

“This scholarship is so important to what I do as an artist,” Julia told the Cleveland Arts Prize. “This financial gift was such a blessing. It allows me to learn and to be an artist, confident that I can afford my education. Working with the fiber department has equipped me with a unique conceptual and technical education that has opened up many great opportunities for me.”

Read the Cleveland Arts Prize profile of Julia Chepke.

Julia’s award is one of four scholarships for students supported by the Cleveland Arts Prize, whose mission is to honor excellence in the arts by awarding prizes to Cleveland-area artists. The John Paul Miller Scholarship is a tuition scholarship that is awarded each year to a fourth-year student at The Cleveland Institute of Art. It was established in honor of CIA grad and longtime faculty member John Paul Miller ’40, a master goldsmith who in 1961 became the winner of the first Cleveland Arts Prize to be awarded in the visual arts.

Read the Cleveland Arts Prize profile of John Paul Miller. To see his work in person, visit the Cleveland Museum of Art where a retrospective of his jewelry will be on view until January 2.
