The Chesterton Art Center in partnership with the Association of Artists and Craftsmen of Porter County is offering the Gloria Rector Scholarship to a Porter County high school senior graduating in the class of 2018 and planning to attend college to major in an art-related field. The scholarship is named in the memory of Gloria Rector, the first Executive Director of the Chesterton Art Center who passed away in 2017. Gloria was a teacher, artist, visionary, and leader – just a few of the many gifts she shared with the Chesterton Art Center throughout her life.
