Blue Connection has named Kathryn Scarim, a senior art therapy major from Palos Park, Ill., the 2015 Summer Artist-in-Residence. Scarim will showcase her artwork throughout the months of June and July 2015.

Continuing her art therapy studies this fall at Millikin, Scarim will focus on painting and drawing during her residency at Blue Connection. “The residency program will allow me to dive deeper into studying, pushing and experimenting with drawing and painting,” said Scarim. “Blue Connection is not just a place for art to be displayed, it’s a place to learn, grow, experiment and create.”

Scarim was recently awarded the David S. Monroe Art Award at Millikin University’s Distinguished Faculty Lecture and Honors Convocation on April 23. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in art, and recognizes students for their major, excellence in their work and exhibiting a professional attitude.
