Past Recipients

Las Damas de Arte has long understood the importance of supporting the artists and art organizations in Hillsborough County. We've sustained a grant/scholarship program ever since we first awarded Tampa Times art critic, Bob Martin, $5,000 in 1972 to attend graduate school. And our legacy continues!

To date, Las Damas de Arte has awarded almost $360,000.
