We are proud to announce that Lucy Kim, Assistant Professor of Painting in BU School of Visual Arts, was awarded a prestigious Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant in the category of Sculpture/Installation/New Genres. Lucy Kim is one of sixteen artists who will receive fellowships of $15,000.
“Lucy joined the SVA faculty in 2017 and has already been a wonderfully collaborative faculty member and great mentor to student artists,” says Dana Clancy, School of Visual Arts Director. “She has expanded the offerings of the graduate and undergraduate Painting area, as well as teaching upper level Sculpture and Printmaking courses. I’m so happy for her to have been recognized by the Mass Cultural Council – good timing with her current residency with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.”
“I am so thrilled to receive this fellowship, especially alongside such incredible artists,” Lucy Kim says. “Good timing too – I’m working on a couple projects that require a fair amount of funding upfront, and this grant helps make the start of these projects much less stressful.”
The awards were anonymously judged, based solely on the artistic quality and creative ability of the work submitted. Applications were open to all eligible Massachusetts artists. A total number of 457 applications were received; 96 in Crafts, 129 in Dramatic Writing, and 232 in Sculpture/Installation/New Genres.
