“Without a doubt, attending Scripps College set me on the path for a successful and fulfilling career in the art world. My incredible experiences at Scripps, which continue as I keep in touch with mentors and become involved in the alumnae network, provided the foundation for my current position and career goals.”
“As one of the first students to graduate with this new degree, I had so much support from many professors in many different departments: chemistry, art history, anthropology, archaeology. The focus on interdisciplinary studies at Scripps provided me with the perfect environment in which to combine my passions for both science and art.”
Under the direction and encouragement of Millard Sheets, Phil Dike and Albert Stewart, Corda Eby worked on painting and sculpture at Scripps. Since then she has lived and worked much of the time in Italy.
Maxine Borowsky Junge ’59 is the 2012 recipient of the Scripps College Distinguished Alumna Award. Her work focuses on the use of art therapy and she is a trailblazer in our understanding of creativity.
