The "Celebrate the Arts" festival, which is sponsored by the University's Osher Life Long Learning Institute, is slated to begin on the afternoon of Friday, March 4, with a high school art competition followed by student-conducted tours of the campus. Students who place in the top three will be awarded arts scholarships of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000 respective.
