Awards & Recognition


There is no greater satisfaction than pursuing ones passion. Achieving a level of performance that is recognized by our peers makes that satisfaction sweeter. Acceptance to competitive exhibitions, selection for prestigious grants and fellowships, awards bestowed for exceptional merit and selection for publication in professional journals and annuals are among those markers that establish the measure of quality that we here at Cal State Fullerton aspire too. Individually and as a group the students, alumni, faculty and staff of our community of artists have been recognized throughout the years for their fine quality of artistic creativity.

We encourage our students to submit their art to competitive exhibitions and many have received highly coveted awards. The awards and publications listed in this section represent honors bestowed upon students and alumni.
