May 11 – July 30, 2023
The 2023 Weston Scholarship exhibition presents award-winning photography by high school and college students from Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties. The photographs, selected from winning portfolios, were created in local high school and college photography courses during the 2022-2023 academic year. Founded in 2004, the Weston Scholarship is part of the Weston Collective (TWC), a nonprofit organization in Monterey County, where science, technology, and art meet through photography. TWC seeks to spread awareness of Edward Weston’s photographic legacy while preserving the rich photographic history of Monterey Bay.
Since 2004, the Weston Scholarship has awarded 447 scholarships totaling over $130,000, made possible through generous donations from individuals, foundations, and local businesses. The Monterey Museum of Art is proud to partner with the Weston Collective to present the annual Weston Scholarship exhibition.
