The Weston Scholarship keeps the traditional process of black and white fine art photography alive in the tradition of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. The Museum connects our community to this legacy by showcasing the next generation of Monterey County photographers. The Weston Scholarship was established in 2004 by Gina and Kim Weston to support high school and college students studying fine art photography in Monterey County, and is specifically focused on students practicing analogue black and white photography. Both Gina and Kim wish to foster photographic education as a way of nurturing a medium they love. They offer students, artists, educators and the community the opportunity to experience the richness of photography through scholarships, mentorships, exhibitions, workshops, publications, lectures, video and artists in residence.
The Monterey Museum of Art maintains a distinguished collection of California Central Coast photography. MMA connects our community to this photographic legacy by showcasing the next generation of Monterey County photographers.
