June 11, 2018
Adriana Farmiga A'96, assistant dean and adjunct professor in the School of Art, was awarded a 2018 MacDowell Summer Fellowship. This year the MacDowell Colony awarded summer fellowships to 84 artists working in seven disciplines; the disciplines include architecture, composition, filmmaking, interdisciplinary art, theatre art, visual art, and writing.
This summer's highly competitive fellowships were awarded from a pool of 978 applications received between October 2017 and January 2018. A panel of distinguished professionals in each discipline selects Fellows based solely on their talent as evidenced by a work sample and project description. The fellowship is part of MacDowell’s mission to nurture the arts by offering creative individuals an inspiring and multidisciplinary environment to produce enduring works of the imagination. Past Fellows have included James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ellen Driscoll, Louise Erdrich, and Dee Rees.
