Art History Associate Professor Stuart Lingo, who is also a Donald E. Petersen Endowed Professor at UW, has been appointed as a 2020–2021 Samuel H. Kress Senior Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA), which is part of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. He will be working on writing his next book, Bronzino's Bodies and Mannerism's Masks.
Photo/Media Professor Rebecca Cummins and just-graduated MFA Stephanie Simek will collaborate on an exhibition during the 4Culture 2020–2021 gallery season. Three additional alums will have exhibitions: Erin Elyse Burns (MFA 2009), Lucy Copper (MFA 2019), and Sara Osebold (BFA 2001; as part of JoSaTo).
In addition to her new book mentioned above, Art History Assistant Professor Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse was a contributor to an exhibition catalog titled Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists, which was co-published by the Minneapolis Institute of Art and University of Washington Press. Three alums were also contributors: Nadia Jackinsky-Sethi (MA 2007, PhD 2012), Bridget Johnson (MA 2014), and Jennifer McLerran (MA 1995, PhD 1999).
Sixteen of our Industrial Design students are participating in the IDSA NW Junior Show this year. The exhibition, which is available online, also includes work by Western Washington University students.
Alums Julia Harrison (MFA 2004) and Kalina Chung (BFA 2016) have each been selected for public art commissions in Seattle. Harrison will create an interior artwork for Miller Community Center on Capitol Hill, and Chung will develop an outdoor installation for a new park in Little Saigon, which is part of the International District.
MadArt, created by alum Alison Wyckoff Milliman (BA 1984), launched an Artist Relief Program this spring due to COVID-19. Among the many artists supported were alums Eroyn Franklin (BFA 2006), Victoria Haven (BFA 1989), Perri Howard (BFA 1996), and Robert Yoder (MFA 1987); links go to their short MadArt videos.
