Artists featured in the MicroVisions Exhibit have generously donated their time and talent to create a painting to help tomorrow's illustrators. Each painting will be auctioned on eBay with all of the proceeds going to the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Fund. The Auction will go live on May 19th and will end on May 28th.

Happy Hour and Celebration will take place on May 21st from 6-10pm. A $5 cover charge will go towards the Student Scholarship Fund.
The history of the Student Scholarship is an impressive one. Since its inception, it has bestowed over one million dollars to the award winners and their respective schools. A Jury of professional peers, including illustrators and art directors, review approximately 9,000 entries every year. From this selection the jury reconvenes to review the original paintings and honor select pieces with cash awards. Illustrators who have been featured in the show have gone on to become some of the field's brightest stars. To date, MicroVisions has raised over $25,000 for these scholarships.
