Alumnus and BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department faculty member Fernanda Cohen (BFA 2004 Illustration) recently received a Jury Award in Altpick’s 2008 Alt Awards for the series War of Words. Altpick, a professional organization for illustrators, photographers, graphic, Web and interactive designers, and animators, presents both juried and peer-reviewed annual awards in each of its creative fields. According to the artist, these winning pieces explore “the dynamic behind 10 different universal arguments: politics, love, childhood, sports, customer service, religion, protests, parenthood, friendship and self.” The illustrations also received a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York and a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles in 2008.
Another recent prize went to Art History Department faculty member Tamara Kostianovsky, who was a 2008 recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Grant. Established in 1985 by painter Lee Krasner (who was also the widow of artist Jackson Pollock), the Pollock-Krasner Foundation awards grants to working artists around the world.
