MILWAUKEE – Inpro has partnered with College Possible Milwaukee to sponsor a nationwide art and photography contest that awards three winners – one being a College Possible Milwaukee student – an education grant of $500 for the art or photography pieces with the highest number of public votes. The final three images could have the opportunity to also be available on Inpro’s inspiration gallery for commercial building clients to choose to display in their healthcare, education or other commercial facility on any of Inpro’s architectural imagery products – wall panels, textiles, signs, elevator interiors or window shades.
College Possible Milwaukee is a nonprofit organization focused on making college admission and success possible for students from low-income backgrounds through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support all at no-cost to students or their families. Since its founding in 2008, College Possible Milwaukee has helped more than 4,000 scholars from under-represented communities get into and through college through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. Inpro wants to connect educational grant opportunities for these students in the art and design space — an area that is under-represented in the academic scholarship world.
Marco Morrison , Executive Director of College Possible Milwaukee, says: “The partnership with Inpro is a great opportunity to provide our scholars with financial support for college but also provides them with a space to highlight their passion for the arts and to showcase their talents to a broader audience. The financial support will allow them to cover some of their college expenses to continue to exhibit self-expression through the arts.”
Melissa Spittel, Vice President of Marketing at Inpro, remarks: “Adding the creative element to our products is what brings spaces to life, helping to deepen the connection and experiences people have within buildings. What better way to celebrate the launch of our art-focused building products than to spark the imaginations of developing artists throughout the country with the #heARTworks Art Contest. College Possible Milwaukee does great things to help elevate students in the Greater Milwaukee area and we’re thrilled to partner to help them with their college goals.”
