Dan Nuhn Memorial ScholarshipA Westbrook student until his death in October, 2005, Dan’s love of art manifested itself not only in experimenting in various art genres but also in the formation of a very profitable business. For years Dan collected Andy Warhol art and was frustrated by the fact that there was not one single source for this. He had to search the world over to add to his collection. This eventually led to Dan Nuhn Art, the only single source for Andy Warhol art. His passion for art fuelled his desire to contact art dealers all over the world to purchase and sell Andy Warhol art. He was respected by everyone he came in contact with, none of whom even suspected that he was so very young. Dan was a very compassionate person who would delight in knowing that a student with the passion he had for art would benefit from a scholarship in his name.
