Metropolitan Museum of Art Announces Recipients of 2009-2010 Fellowships
The Charles Engelhard Court in the process of installation in The New American Wing.
NEW YORK, NY.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art will host a group of 51 fellows, which consists of graduate students and scholars from the United States and around the world. The fellows will undertake study and research projects, either at the Museum or abroad, for periods ranging from three months to one year, most of them beginning in September 2009.

Among the 2009-2010 fellowship recipients are scholars affiliated with such American insitutions as Columbia University, Harvard University, the University of California Los Angeles, and New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. Recipients from foreign museums, conservation centers, and universities include scholars from Cambridge University; the University of London; the Limburg Conservation Institute of Maastricht, The Netherlands; and the Seoul National University of South Korea.

Areas of study and research include: iconoclasm in African art; Deccani carpets; Medieval Jewish aesthetic production; microscopic plate-wear in impressions of Albrecht Dürer prints; and conservation issues of early sixteenth-century choir tapestry fragments.

Fellowship Program

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Fellowship Program is one of the largest and most distinguished of its kind. The program is dedicated to supporting the continued scholarly investigation and research into the Museum's encyclopedic collections and furthering the fields of art history, art conservation, and scientific research. First established in 1951, the program was formalized in 1974 with the formation of the Grants Committee, which oversees the selection process of fellows and is involved in all major decisions related to fellowships.

Fellows come from around the world and range in their levels of expertise from those just beginning doctoral research work or conservation training to those who are already established senior scholars, museum curators, conservators, or scientific researchers with extensive publication records. Fellowship terms may be as short as three months (for senior scholars) and as long as one year, depending on the needs of the fellow and the specific project.

Fellows are fully incorporated into the everyday life of the Museum, with its exceptional collections and library resources. The Museum's knowledgable curatorial, conservation, and scientific research staff host the fellows in their respective departments, supervise their research, and collaborate with them throughout their terms. All fellows are expected to spend their fellowships in residence at the Museum, with the exception of Theodore Rousseau fellows—usually predoctoral scholars—who spend the duration of their fellowship terms abroad.

To supplement their independent research and provide insight into the enormous scope of the Museum's day-to-day operations, a series of events is coordinated throughout the year to facilitate fellows' interaction with Museum staff working outside of their area of specialization. These include weekly coffees/teas in the fall with Museum staff, a welcome meeting hosted by the Director for all incoming fellows, and behind-the-scenes tours through Museum exhibitions and the Museum conservation and scientific research facilities.

Every spring, colloquia allow fellows to present their work-in-progress. These colloquia bring together renowned scholars from the tristate area as well as Museum colleagues and fellowship donors.
