Last month, the Institute of Jamaica presented its annual Musgrave Medals, which honor achievements in the fields of literature, art and science. At the awards ceremony in downtown Kingston, alumnus Howard Moo-Young (G 1967) received a silver Musgrave Medal for his contributions to the field of photography. The prestigious Jamaican prize was created over 100 years ago as a memorial to Sir Anthony Musgrave, former Governor of Jamaica who founded the Institute in 1879.
Another prize went to MAT Art Education Department faculty member Andrew J. Bencsko. He received a 2008 American Graphic Design Award for his layout work on the department’s most recent catalog, which features work created by students in his Technology in Art Education course. The award was given by Graphic Design USA, a monthly magazine aimed at graphic design professionals.
