UI Painting and Drawing Professor Receives Mitchell Foundation Grant
IOWA CITY.- University of Iowa faculty member Susan Chrysler White was awarded a $25,000 Joan Mitchell Foundation 2008 Painters and Sculptors Grant. The grant will be used to enhance her studio and develop new work.

The nonprofit foundation supports painters and sculptors who create exceptional work, who are under-recognized for their artistic achievements, and whose career would benefit from the grant. The foundation was established honor of painter Joan Mitchell, a leading New York City abstract expressionist who died in 1992.

White is an associate professor of painting and drawing in the School of Art and Art History, part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She holds an M.F.A. from the University of California at Davis. Her work has been showcased at numerous art museums, and reviewed in ARTFORUM, Art in America, Art News, and Arts Magazine.

A panel of prominent curators, art educators and artists judged images of the nominees' work through an anonymous process. Application was by nomination only.
