Hirst and Sousa awarded RIF fellowships
Leslie Hirst (Associate Professor, Foundation Studies) and Daniel Sousa (Critic, Film/Animation/Video) have been awarded $25,000 fellowships by the Rhode Island Foundation.
The Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowship Fund has provided the funding for the $25,000 awards, which enable artists to spend more time on the creative process, concentrate on personal or professional development, expand their bodies of work and explore new directions. The annual awards rotate among composers, writers and visual artists.
Finalists included Jennaca Davies (faculty, Continuing Education) and RISD Graduate Asya Palatova.
