Christina Seely - The Hour of Land

Assistant Professor of Studio Art Christina Seely has work showcased in an exhibition of photographs in correlation with those curated into Terry Tempest Williams' new book The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America's National Parks that is up at EUQINOM projects in San Francisco.

"Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, this book is a literary celebration honoring the centennial of the National Park Service. This is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America and includes a collection of photographs evoking an emotional landscape in parallel with Tempest William's writings about each national park." (from Euqinom projects Gallery)

A reception that includes a reading by Terry and a panel discussion with Christina and other artists from the book will take place on June 8 from 6-8pm.

Enrico Riley '95 Wins Rome Prize

(Originally published in Dartmouth Now May 09, 2016 by Hannah Silverstein, MALS '09)

Associate Professor of Studio Art Enrico Riley ’95 has won a 2016 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome.

Given annually to about 30 exceptional emerging artists and scholars from around the United States, the Rome Prize will provide studio space, lodging, and a stipend to allow Riley to spend close to a year living—and painting—in the Italian capital.

“The Rome Prize is a huge honor for Professor Riley,” says Barbara Will, associate dean for the arts and humanities. “It is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement, and a shining testament to his national and international reputation as a painter. We are thrilled to be able to share in his success.”
