The Medici Circle is a Lubbock community volunteer group supporting School of Art through friends-raising and fund-raising for art scholarships. Since 2005, when the group first formed, the Medici Circle has successfully created or augmented nearly $400,000 in art scholarship endowments through membership dues and annual fundraisers.
Medici Circle’s primary annual fundraiser is the much enjoyed 5x7 Art Scholarship Fundraiser. This event provides a delightful mix of art, food, drink, and wild fun during the “art grab.” This year's Coolsville-Rocking the 50s themed party will be held on january 21 2017 at the Lubbock Country Club- save the date. More details coming soon.
This year revenues from Medici Circle endowments provided scholarships to ten graduate and undergraduate scholars in the different areas of study at the School of Art. Because the Medici Circle continues to help create new endowments each year, the numbers and amounts of scholarships have steadily increased since 2008 when the first Medici Circle scholarship made. Medici Circle Endowments include:

Gallery exhibition: February 3 – February 28, 2017

Daylight is a non-profit organization dedicated to publishing art and photography books.
