The Anthony Quinn Foundation recently awarded twelve high school students scholarships for their demonstrated talent in the arts. The Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship Program is modeled after the life of artist and actor Anthony Quinn and aims to help students financially with participation in summer arts programs. Scholarships are awarded in the fields of visual arts and design, performing arts, media arts, and literary arts.
The Anthony Quinn Foundation was established by Quinn's wife, Katherine, as a way to honor Quinn's devotion to creating and collecting art. The foundation seeks ways to raise and distribute funding for arts scholarships. Katherine says that “As the cornerstone in its vision, mission and values, the Anthony Quinn Foundation embraces creativity and the arts not only for their pleasure but for their central purpose in growth and development.”
Malcolm Grear Designers designed the scholarships awards. The studio also designed the visual identity for the foundation and numerous posters, catalogues, invitations, and awards. Our long relationship with Katherine Quinn and the Anthony Quinn Foundation began when she asked us to design the retrospective book Anthony Quinn: A Lifetime of Creating and Collecting Art, a 228-page book available in a regular and limited box edition.
A video was recently released that interviews some of the people that made the Scholarship program possible and also interviews the awardees.
