Four members of the MICA Community are listed with other visual artists for the prestigious award
Posted 02.23.12 by MICA Communications
The foundation was established by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1918 to operate his Laurelton Hall estate in Long Island, as a summer retreat for young artists and craftspeople. Tiffany, the son of the founder of Tiffany & Co., was a painter and innovator in the design of glass objects and windows. After the sale of the estate in 1946, the foundation's mission changed to awarding grants to artists who are nominated by selection from art professionals.
The winners include the Genevieve McMillian/Reba Stewart chair in painting Mequitta Ahuja, Rinehart School of Sculpture Graduate Director Maren Hassinger, Lauren Kelley '97 (general fine arts), former faculty member Michael Rakowitz and Anna Shteynshleyger '99 (photography).
