December 20, 2017

UW-Madison’s Arts Institute recently announced the winners of it’s 2018 Awards in the Creative Arts, and three people with ties to the School of Education are being honored.

Andrea Harris, an associate professor with the Dance Department, is receiving an Emily Mead Baldwin Award, while J Myszka Lewis, a curator with the Art Department’s Tandem Press, is receiving the Edna Wiechers Arts in Wisconsin Award. In addition, master of fine arts candidates and collaborators Maria Wood of the Design Studies Department and Leigh Garcia of the School of Education’s Art Department are receiving a Sinaiko Frank Graduate Fellowship for a Woman in the Arts.

The School of Education is home to a range of arts programs, including UW-Madison’s Art Department, Dance Department and the Department of Theatre and Drama.

The Arts Institute provides research support to faculty, staff and students in the arts and each spring recognizes achievements and professional service, along with supporting future creative endeavors and research.

The Arts Institute offers six awards annually and one award bi-annually, amounting to approximately $86,000. The grants are divided into three categories: Arts Faculty Research, Arts Faculty and Staff Outreach, and Undergraduate and Graduate Student Achievement in the Arts.

The recipients for the 2018 Awards in the Creative Arts were selected by the Arts Awards Review Committee on Dec. 5 and will be honored at a reception on May 8, 2018.
