“We can no longer think of a world as ‘what I see, I feel, or what I know to be the truth.’ Instead, we should direct our energy to ‘what we see, we feel, and what we construct to be our truth in our time.’ We must strike a common ground.”
Ronn Davis, beloved retired Santa Monica College Art Department faculty member, mentor, and department chair, felt that Santa Monica College is “a unique place, where students come from varying ages, ethnicities, socio-economic and religious backgrounds, that provides a melting pot of ideas.” Ronn’s gift for teaching was rooted in his ability to find and amplify the positive attributes of his students. Realizing that this world may not always be the friendliest environment for artists to develop, he wanted to help students navigate the art world, and pursue their dreams. Ronn established the Art Scholarship Fund to support art students on their journey and to help them realize their full potential as the next generation of artists.
