DEL VALLE, Texas – A Del Valle High School senior was awarded a $10,000 Art Institute of Austin scholarship on Thursday, May 10, during the Best in Show reception at the Art Institute of Austin to pursue a college degree in Visual Arts.

Del Valle High School senior Celeste Gallegos received the scholarship for her digital photograph named “The Feelings of Colors Have Shadows,” which showcases a black and white photo of a woman with three colored-striped (white, green and red) across her cheeks.

“We’re so proud of this stunning and dynamic work of art from our students,” Jenny Perry, Fine Arts Coordinator said.
