Dr. Gardner and Dr. Dufresne awarded NEH Grant


Congratulations to Fine Arts faculty Dr. Laura Gardner (Art Education) and Dr. Laura Dufresne (Art History) who have been awarded a $93,129 NEH grant for their project “Take Note and Remember: The Commonplace Book and Its American Descendants.” The project will fund a two-week seminar for sixteen college and university teachers to explore the development of the commonplace book and regional examples of its American descendants.

Their art of the book research is one of many subjects that has encouraged student learning in the department, and is proving to be important within the larger visual art and design community.
