Alumni Appeal

Skowhegan was founded by artists for artists. Alumni contributions carry forward our founding spirit and demonstrate that Skowhegan matters to artists.

Barbara Lapcek Scholarship Fund

Alumni donations can also be directed towards the Barbara Lapcek Scholarship Fund, honoring former Executive Director of Program (1984-1995). Lapcek was instrumental in Skowhegan's transition from a program primarily focused on painting and sculpture to one in which conceptual, performance, and technology-based practices were embraced and nurtured. A staunch advocate for both creative and artistic diversity, the scholarship programs she initiated and the campus building projects she helmed ensured the thriving multiplicity of practice and community that has made Skowhegan so renowned and successful today.
