Ned Blackhawk (1996), Tiya Miles (2007), and Jeffrey Gibson (2019) at SAR.

The Sunday, April 14 edition of the New York Times mentions notable achievements by three SAR alumni.

Both Ned Blackhawk (Katrin Lamon Fellow, 1996-1997;  SAR Board of Directors 2017-2023) and Tiya Miles (SAR Fellow, 2007-2008) have been named 2024 Guggenheim Fellows. The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation awards these fellowships annually to “exceptional individuals in pursuit of scholarship in any field of knowledge and creation in any art form, under the freest possible conditions.”

Jeffrey Gibson (Ronald & Susan Dubin Artist Fellow, 2008) is the subject of a Times illustrated feature article, “Representing the U.S. and Critiquing It in a Psychedelic Rainbow,” which describes Gibson’s dramatic installation at the Venice Biennale. He will be the first Native American solo artist to represent the U.S. in the 94-year history of the Biennale’s U.S. Pavillion.

We celebrate the success of these creative individuals, whose time on our campus speaks eloquently of SAR’s ability to identify and reward talent at an early stage of emerging careers.
