Hamden Art League Awards Scholarship To Vienna Hinkson.

The 2015 Hamden Art League Scholarship was awarded to Vienna Hinkson, a senior at Hamden High School, at the June 4th awards ceremony. Vienna will be attending the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia in the fall of 2015. This program combines the fine arts program with the University of Pennsylvania, allowing Vienna to graduate with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree.

Vienna was recently honored by the Hamden Arts Commission at the Salute to Young Artists in the Visual Arts. During her senior year, she attended Educational Center for the Arts in New Haven, a program for high school students who demonstrate exceptional talent in visual, literary or performing arts. In 2014 she received the Mayor's Citation Certificate in recognition of outstanding ability in the arts.

Hamden Art League takes pride in recognizing students for their talent and contributions to the community. A scholarship is awarded annually to a Hamden High School senior who will be studying the visual arts in college.
