Congratulations to IAS artist-in-residence, Russell Crotty, on his 2015 Guggenheim Fellowship! Crotty is one of 175 Fellows selected from more than 3100 distinguished writers, artists, scientists and scholars from the U.S. and Canada. His project with the IAS brings him to Lick Observatory and to the UC Santa Cruz campus to work with scientists, students, and IAS staff on a hybrid exhibition that combines Crotty's work with artifacts and documents from Lick, and images from cosmological research by UC Santa Cruz scientists. More information is available on the residency here.
For 91 years, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowships have recognized innovative scholars who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and exceptional promise. Since 1925, the foundation has distributed more than $325 million in fellowships to nearly 18,000 individuals.
“These artists and writers, scholars and scientists represent the best of the best,” said Edward Hirsch, president of the foundation. “It’s an honor to be able to support these individuals to do the work they were meant to do.”
