The 2016-17 Finalists

Rau for Art is thrilled to announce our Finalists for the 2016-2017 Scholarship Competition!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2016-17 Rau for Art Scholarship Competition. This year was our biggest yet, with a record 147 submissions from 16 schools in the Greater New Orleans area.

Every year it is difficult to choose our ten finalists, and this year was no exception. We are not only proud of our finalists, but we are proud of all the entries we received – each displayed remarkable creativity and artistry. Thank you to all the students who applied and shared their dreams with us.

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

Introducing our 2016-2017 RFA Scholarship Competition Finalists!


All of these outstanding artworks will be on display in the Rau for Art Exhibition, held in the Royal Gallery at M.S. Rau Antiques, from February 14 – April 1.  Our scholarship recipients will be announced at the conclusion of this exhibition at a special invitation-only luncheon ceremony.  Best of luck to our Finalists!
