Core poetry faculty in the AULA MFA in Creative Writing program, Victoria Chang, was recently awarded a Macdowell Colony fellowship, which was announced in January in an article in ARTFORUM.
Chang will be part of an interdisciplinary cohort of eighty-six artists from eighteen states and nine countries. The group includes composers, a landscape architect, film artists, visual artists, and more. Chosen from a pool of over eight-hundred applicants, the fellows receive private studio space at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire for up to eight weeks, accommodations, and three meals a day.
“From cutting edge film to bold new directions in electronic music, and from topical theater to new approaches in multi-disciplinary design, this group of fellows represents a stunning array of creative approaches to make new work destined to delight art lovers far and wide,” Macdowell Colony executive director Cheryl A. Young said in a statement.
