The Dream of Joyce de Guatemala

Joyce de Guatemala Bush Vourvoulias was born in Mexico City to Cassius Albert Bush and Martha Bush of Guatemalan heritage. She was a former visiting artist and Board member of Brandywine Workshop who died suddenly in 2000 leaving a legacy of artistic works and service that reflected her interests in the environment and people, especially Latina women artists. She was particularly interested in the plight of those who were geographically or economically isolated and having few opportunities to advance their art careers. Her husband, Jason, who died shortly after Joyce, shared this interest and a passion for the arts. Acting upon the dream of Joyce to bring more Latina women visiting artists to Brandywine for exposure, training and career advancement, the family established the Joyce DeGuatemala and Jason Vourvoulias Scholarship funds to support the goal. In order to fully realize Joyce’s dream, sponsored artists would demonstrate a commitment to furthering their career through the residency opportunity and explore public service through their art.
