Commemorative Tiles

We are again bringing our supporters a signature commemorative tile for your continued support of this artistic scholarship fund. This will be our fifth commemorative tile and each tile has been designed to feature the Owens “Rings” on a different artistic medium.

For this year only, our supporters can purchase a complete set of commemorative tiles or just an individual season.

The 2022 tile will be printed on burlap.

Creative Expressions Student Support Event

In 2016, Owens honors student Yevette Stevens wanted to create an event that would support the efforts of students wanting to pursue an artistic career path.  Her passion sparked the annual event Creative Expressions. Since that first event, it has taken on many forms but always put an art experience as the centerpiece.  Each year since, the Creative Expressions event has sponsored a tile design that highlights the iconic “The Rings” as the inspiration.  These tiles have been the symbol of artistic support for our students each year.  This year in 2022, though we were not able to gather, is no different.  This design on burlap is one of five on different artistic mediums.

I hope that you will continue to support our Artistic Award fund by purchasing this year’s tile.  NEW this year only, you are able to purchase past year titles or if this is your first year, support this event by purchasing the entire collection.  Tiles 2017-2021 are in limited quantities., excluding 2020.

To date, we have awarded over $30,000 to students majoring in an artistic field and I hope that you will support this event in 2022 so we can support as many students as possible to achieve their artistic dream.
