Outstanding Student Awarded

Charlotte Burge, BFA Sculpture, is the recipient of a scholarship selected by the Mississippi State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Charlotte was selected for her outstanding achievements as an art student in the Department of Art & Art History.

Charlotte Burge transferred from Itawamba Community College to The University of Mississippi in the pursuit of obtaining a BFA with an emphasis in sculpture. She was nominated and selected by a group of faculty members in the Department of Art & Art History, not only for the globally powerful topic she has chosen to focus on with the work she is creating, but also because of her character.

Charlotte’s mixed media sculptures expose and the reality of mental illness, currently a very important topic for our country. She reveals the struggles individuals may encounter using a variety of materials, including children’s toys, such as building blocks, dolls and tiny houses.

Charlotte will receive her scholarship award on August 7th at a luncheon held by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Jackson, MS.
