The scholarship was established in 2007 at Lahser High School as a tribute to Norman Stewart, artist/teacher from 1969-2006. It underscores the life values of integrity, excellence, performance, and vision Norman passionately instilled in his art students over nearly four decades.
Norman and wife Susan, (former artist/teacher at Conant Elementary) are the founders of Stewart & Stewart, a renown printer and publisher of fine art prints. Their fine prints, created in collaboration with artists nationwide, have been displayed at the Detroit Institute of Arts, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art and many other museums across Michigan and the country. Stewart & Stewart was one of the first printer/publishers inducted into the prestigious International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) in New York and is among the longest running independent printer/publishers in North America.
