We are pleased to announce that Illustration faculty Lauren Redniss has been named a MacArthur Fellow. Recognizing 23 exceptionally creative individuals with a track record of achievement and the potential for significant contributions in the future, the Foundation named the 2016 MacArthur Fellows. Fellows will each receive a no-strings-attached stipend, allowing recipients maximum freedom to follow their own creative visions.
“While our communities, our nation, and our world face both historic and emerging challenges, these 23 extraordinary individuals give us ample reason for hope,” said MacArthur President Julia Stasch. “They are breaking new ground in areas of public concern, in the arts, and in the sciences, often in unexpected ways. Their creativity, dedication, and impact inspire us all.”
