The Grant Wood Art Colony announces its three fellows for the 2016-17 academic year: Colin Lyons in Printmaking, Christopher-Rasheem McMillan in Interdisciplinary Performance (Dance), and Tameka Norris in Painting and Drawing. Each fellow was selected from hundreds of applications from around the world by a committee of faculty members. As the reputation of the Grant Wood Art Colony grows, so does the caliber of the application pool. The School of Art and Art History, the Division of Performing Arts, and the Colony are thrilled to welcome these three artists to campus in August.

The Grant Wood Fellowship program currently provides three one-year fellowships in painting, printmaking, and interdisciplinary performance. The interdisciplinary performance fellowship rotates between dance, theater, and music. During the academic year, each fellow will teach a total of two courses at the University of Iowa, leaving the rest of the time for the artist’s own work and research.

More information about each Fellow can be found under Current & Past Fellows.
