Imna Arroyo, CSU professor of printmaking, has been named recipient of the Outstanding Latino/a Cultural Arts, Fine and Performing Arts Award by the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE). The AAHHE presented the award to Arroyo at an awards luncheon on March 10 in Costa Mesa, CA.
Arroyo was selected by a panel of experts in higher education for her significant accomplishments and her contributions to a greater public understanding of the Hispanic community and culture through arts expression.
"I want to express my deepest appreciation to the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE). This recognition of my work is not just for me alone. It is a celebration of the kindness and vision of those who have helped to bring me to this moment. This moment is a re-affirmation of the powerful African adage: 'I am because we are. We are because I am.'"
