In April, the 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship for photography was awarded to New York-based artist and professor Lyle Ashton Harris (Art MFA 90) who has “established an arts practice rooted in diversity of both the media used and the ideas explored.” The Guggenheim Fellowship has been awarded annually to artists who have demonstrated their ability for excellent scholarship and creative practices.

National Design Award

Graphic Designer Geoff McFetridge (Art MFA 95) was recognized for his work in communication design by the National Design Awards. McFetridge, along with the otherNational Design Award recipients, will be honored at the annual gala benefit dinner held at the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden in New York City on October 20.

In an interview with designboom, McFetridge said: “Art for me has always equated to invention, and I am drawn to images. So when you are inventing images, the world starts to melt and become something to manipulate. Design language, which has a relationship with abstraction, is very accessible to me. My paintings are as much rooted in logos as they are in art history.”

Berlin Prize

The Herb Alpert Award in the Arts winner Daniel Joseph Martinez (Art BFA 79) was awarded the Berlin Prize by the American Academy in Berlin. This prestigious award is given annually to scholars and artists who have excelled in their field. During his fellowship, Martinez will interrogate war and architecture, thinking about the disappearance of Western Civilization in an age of evolving technology.

Heffernan was recently named a full professor of art at Occidental College in Los Angeles, and becomes the chair of the college’s Art and Art History Department in August.

LACMA Art + Technology Grant

The Los Angeles Museum of Art (LACMA) has awarded Michael Mandiberg (Art MFA 03) its Art + Technology grant.
