Many of our undergraduates do interesting and amazing things. Here are just a few examples of students and recent graduates furthering their education and experience in different ways.

Adrian Gomez

3D4M: ceramics + glass + sculpture, senior

Gomez was awarded a summer workshop at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado. Since 1966, Anderson Ranch has promoted the development of artists at all levels of expertise through workshops, artists’ residencies, and other educational programs. Gomez chose an eleven-day course in June titled Mold Making: systems & surfaces. His Anderson Ranch Partner Scholarship was supported by the School of Art + Art History + Design Sperry/Warashina Endowed Fellowship Fund.

Jade Granger

Industrial Design, senior

After participating in a two-month workshop for juniors in Industrial Design and 3D4M, Granger’s proposal was selected for inclusion in this year’s Rometti Prize competition. She travels to the Rometti factory in Umbertide, Italy, during July for a ten-day internship where she will join five other students from Italy and France. They will create prototypes of their designs while being immersed in the operations of a successful ceramic design studio. This is the fourth year that the School has partnered with Rometti, and Granger’s transportation is being paid for by a Boyer and Elizabeth Bole Gonzales Scholarship.

Natalie Lew

Interaction Design, graduated June 2017

Lew was appointed as one of six Adobe Creative Residents in May 2017. This is a one-year commitment during which Adobe supports her work on a passion project. She plans to develop a user experience (UX) design toolkit that can be applied in a variety of ways. Learn more about her at the page linked above and in the video on that page (she is the first profile in the video).

Nick Phillips

3D4M: ceramics + glass + sculpture, senior

Phillips (2016 Doris Totten Chase Scholarship awardee) was chosen as the recipient of a Partner Scholarship from Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. The summer program at Pilchuck has provided training  in a variety of glassworking processes for several decades. Phillips selected a two-week July/August session titled Supervision: Glassblowing, Coldworking, Light, Performance, Installation. The School of Art + Art History + Design Rollin Austin Scholarship Fund is matching the Pilchuck scholarship to support Philips' attendance.

Scarlett Strauss

Art History, graduated June 2017

Strauss begins the PhD program at the New York University Institute of Fine Arts in the autumn with full funding for at least six years. She plans to focus on Italian Renaissance art history, working with Professor Alexander Nagel. This summer, she is studying Latin so that she can be an active participant in a Frick Art Reference Library seminar in mid-September on archival research methods and Latin/Italian paleography.

Marina Trujillo

Painting + Drawing, senior

Trujillo was nominated for a fellowship to attend the Yale Summer School of Art and Music, which takes place on the Stoeckel estate in Norfolk, Connecticut, from late May to the beginning of July. She is attending workshops and lectures as well as receiving individual critiques form the faculty. Her registration fees were covered by a School of Art + Art History + Design Parnassus Endowed Scholarship.
