This award recognizes outstanding achievement of our undergraduate art students during their senior year, promotes professionalism and excellence in the visual arts, and motivates and encourages all art students to achieve their fullest potential throughout their years in the program.
The mission of the visiting artist program is to honor the legacy of Frederick Hammersley and expand awareness of his life and work through the establishment of links to some of the most visible painters working today. The visiting artists are provided a beautiful studio to work in close proximity to Department of Art graduate students.
