The Yale School of Art is pleased to announce that alumni Gary Burnley (MFA ‘74), Sam Contis (MFA ‘08), Nathaniel Donnett (MFA ‘21), Chie Fueki (MFA ‘98), Mark Thomas Gibson (MFA ‘13), Janice Nowinski (MFA ‘87), and Rebecca Soderholm (MFA ‘07) are among the 2022 Guggenheim Fellows named this week by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
This year’s fellowships were awarded to 180 writers, scholars, artists, and scientists meticulously selected from nearly 2,500 applicants across the United States and Canada in the Foundation’s ninety-seventh competition. Chosen through a rigorous peer-review process on the basis of both prior achievement and exceptional promise, the 2022 Fellows are drawn from 51 scholarly disciplines and artistic fields, 81 academic institutions, 31 states and the District of Columbia, and four Canadian provinces. The 2022 Guggenheim Fellows range in age from 33 to 75 and almost 60 have no full-time college or university affiliation.
Since its establishment in 1925, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has granted nearly $400 million in Fellowships to over 18,000 individuals, among whom are more than 125 Nobel laureates, members of all the national academies, winners of the Pulitzer Prize, Fields Medal, Turing Award, Bancroft Prize, National Book Award, and other internationally recognized honors.
