The American Academy in Rome presented the winners at the Arthur & Janet C. Ross Rome Prize Ceremony, held at the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City on April 16th.
The ceremony featured a presentation by artist Carrie Mae Weems, FAAR'06, which was followed by a discussion between Weems and Academy president Mark Robbins, FAAR'97, as part of the ongoing series, Conversations/Conversazioni: From the American Academy in Rome. The Rome Prize winners were presented by Mary Margaret Jones, FAAR'98, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and were welcomed by Academy director Kim Bowes, FAAR'06.
The Academy awards the Rome Prize to a unique group of artists and scholars annually, after an application process that begins each fall. The winners, selected by independent juries through a national competition process, are invited to Rome the following year to pursue their work in an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic experimentation and interdisciplinary exchange.
