    Abstract: 

    Each year, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, Inc. awards ten graduating seniors each with $15,000 in the form of a Windgate Fellowship. Over 70 universities from across the United States are invited to nominate two graduating seniors with exemplary skill in craft for one of the largest awards offered nationally to art students. Applicants complete an online application with images of their work and a proposal outlining how the $15,000 will enhance their career. A panel of four recognized professionals reviewed the applications on the basis of artistic merit, the future promise of the applicants work, and the potential for the applicant to make significant contributions to the field of craft. Since 2006, the Fellowship has been awarded to 50 graduating seniors representing 30 colleges and universities in 20 states. This session presents three of the previous Windgate Fellows who will discuss their awarded proposal and the impact of its contribution to their chosen profession. Aaron McIntosh, who received a MFA from the Virginia Commonwealth University, teaches textiles as Assistant Professor of Art at James Madison University. Jeremy Holmes, who currently has a studio in Ithaca, studied at the State University of New York where he graduated with a BFA in Sculpture. Elizabeth Staiger received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and is currently Technical Assistant of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Jewelry and Metals department.
