The Oak Park Area Arts Council is proud to announce the 2011 recipients of the Russell C. Lissuzzo Scholarship. The Lissuzzo award goes to students who will major in architecture in college.

The Russell C. Lissuzzo Scholarship was established in the fall of 2007 after Russ Lissuzzo, architect, “drawer,” jazz musician and a life-long huge supporter of the arts, passed away. In lieu of flowers, the family requested that donations be made to the Oak Park Area Arts Council in order to honor Russ with a fine arts scholarship program.
The 2011 Oak Park Area Arts Council Scholarship review panel members were:
John Mayes – Chair, George Bailey, Ross Lissuzzo, Jessica Mackinnon, Neil McFadden, Keeley McNeal, and Kathy Osler.
