Two with AU connections receive Guggenheim Fellowships

Two artists with connections to Alfred University are among the 180 recipients of Guggenheim Fellowship Awards for 2010.

Mary Lum, a former professor of painting in the School of Art & Design, and Michael Jones McKean, a 2002 graduate of the School of Art & Design with a Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramic art, were among those selected from more than 3,000 applicants for the prestigious awards, which average more than $40,000 per recipient.

Lum was a member of the faculty at Alfred University for more than 20 years before joining the faculty at Bennington College in Vermont.

McKean is a member of the faculty of Virginia Commonwealth University.
