Ayo-Oluwa Salawu Wins BSOA Bursary Award

August 19, 2016

The Bermuda Society of Arts [BSOA] announced that Ayo-Oluwa Salawu has been awarded the 2016 BSOA Bursary Award in the amount of $5,000.

The BSOA said, “Ayo-Oluwa is dedicated to design and is pursuing a joint degree programme – Beng [Hons] in Architecture and Environmental Engineering in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects at Niagara College in Canada. He enjoys model making, drawing, playing basketball and football.

“The student candidates were short-listed by members of the BSOA’s bursary selection committee – Former BSOA governing body member Catherine Hay and former BSOA co-president Dr. Edwin Smith.

“The $5,000 bursary, awarded annually by the BSOA, is designed to provide financial aid to a Bermudian student interested in furthering their post-secondary education in fine arts and/or design. The recipient should be registered at an accredited college or university for either undergraduate or post-graduate studies.”

The BSOA is the island’s oldest arts organisation, now over 60 years, and it is hoped that through generous sponsorship the society will be able to increase this bursary in the future to help more talented Bermudian artists fulfill their dreams.

The gallery is located on the top floor of the City Hall and Arts Centre, Church Street, Hamilton, and is open six days a week.
