Chris Horton Scholarship Fund

The Chris Horton Scholarship Fund was established in the Spring of 2005 to honor the contribution Chris, Professor Emeritus of Experimental Studio, made to the University of Hartford Art School from 1968-2000. A gift from Chris's friend, John Tucker, created the endowment, which provides a scholarship every year to a first-year art student.

The annual awards are granted to students with the most "out of the box" artistic and educational promise, students Chris would have taken a special interest in. Financial need is also a consideration.

A special thanks goes out to all donors. The mailing address for donations is:
Chris Horton Scholarship Fund
University of Hartford Art School
200 Bloomfield Avenue
West Hartford, CT 06117

As a token of appreciation, we have given all donors an 11"x14" reproduction of Chris's Apple/Cummington woodcut, which he carved during the summer of 1969 in Cummington, MA.
