NYFA Proudly Announces the 2014 Artists’ Fellowships Awardees, three of which are Parsons Photography and Fine Arts Faculty members: Sammy Cucher and Anthony Aziz of Aziz + Cucher, and Saya Woolfalk, all in the category of  Digital/Electronic Arts.

Aziz + Cucher will use the award towards upgrading the computers in their studio, and currently, they are developing a new body of multi-channel video work that addresses the relationship between the economy and religion, as well as preparing for an exhibition of tapestries made on a digital loom that address issues relating to the on-going conflict in the Middle East.
