Donatello . . . Michelangelo . . . Leonardo . . . they all had to start somewhere! Early in their careers, patrons such as the Medici family of Florence purchased and collected their work, helping these aspiring artists to build a name, support their apprentices, and sustain their workshops. Since even before the Renaissance, people in communities have purchased and collected art, supporting new artists' work and helping them to build their professional careers. That tradition continues today through Oregon State University's Norma Seibert Printmaking Scholarship. Here, you have an opportunity to support the work of aspiring artists and to receive beautiful artwork to own and enjoy.
Who was Norma Seibert?
As a grandmother in her 60’s Norma Seibert, OSU 1926, returned to Oregon State to pursue her love of printmaking, where she soon grew to become a favorite of the faculty and students. Supporting the program she loved, Norma Seibert contributed funds to buy new printmaking equipment and created an endowment to support students.
