The San Francisco office of law firm Clyde & Co LLP held an event to honor local art students through the firm’s fifth annual Art Awards, organized through a partnership with local art colleges Academy of Art, California College of the Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute. The aim is support emerging artists.

Nineteen student artists were selected from 68 entries from the universities to exhibit in the firm’s office. The pieces are on display for one year, according to the firm.

The firm grants participating artists a $500 honorarium, pro bono legal services, professional art sales advice and potential sales opportunities, in which all proceeds go directly to the artists. In addition, cash awards were given to two participating artists for their pieces at a reception at the Clyde & Co San Francisco office on Oct. 11.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the dynamic San Francisco art scene through this year’s Art Award,” said Bill Casey, partner in the firm’s San Francisco office. “It is an honor to have such talent displayed in our office, and we are proud to be able to award the artists with means to pursue their passion.”
