Associate Professor Jon McMillan was recently awarded one of twelve Professional Visual Art Fellowships from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for 2019-20.  The statewide award, which includes exhibition opportunities and funding for artistic research and creation, is highly competitive, with 753 applicants for 28 fellowships in three categories. Recipients are selected through a blind jury process, with decisions based solely on the artwork submitted. The VMFA Visual Arts Fellowship Program celebrates its 80thanniversary next year.
