Our very own Daniel Kraus, second year MFA student in photography, was recently awarded a 2016 Professional Development Fellowship through the College Art Association. This is a highly competitive and prestigious international award given to only one graduate student across all visual disciplines. I've been told that he is the first Tyler Graduate student to ever receive the award. He will attend the CAA annual conference next week in New York City for an award ceremony.
Here's his brief bio:

Tyler Faculty Member Wins National Award Dr. Lisa Kay, Assistant Professor, Art Education and Community Arts Practices, Tyler School of Art, Temple University is being honored with the Mary J. Rouse Award from the National Art Education Association (NAEA) Women's Caucus. The Rouse award is given annually to recognize the contributions of an early professional who has shown potential to make significant contributions in the art education profession. Kay will be presented with the award at the 2014 NAEA conference in March in San Diego, California.
Lisa said, "It was an honor to be considered for this award but actually receiving this recognition is beyond my wildest imagination. When I look at the long list of award winners whose work has shaped the field of art education, I am humbled. Seeing my name added to the lineage of art educators is an incredible honor, which supports my previous efforts and challenges me to manifest my most creative work."

Graphic & Interactive Design MFA student, Noopur Agarwal, was awarded the 2013 Design Ignites Change Student Fellowship. Noopur's project, Nashta Exchange was created in Professor Kelly Holohan's graduate thesis course last Spring where the assignment theme was "Crisis". With Nashta Exchange, U.S. high school students learn to cook/sell Pav Bhaji, a popular Indian dish, locally at their very own food stall where all of the proceeds go towards buying meals for underprivileged high schoolers in India. Nashta Exchange provides the students with tool kits featuring everything they need to get started.

Congratulations to Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and Bluecadet Interactive on being selected by Communications Arts for the newly redesigned Tyler Website! The project was rather complex and required a collaborative effort to resolve Tyler's needs. The Tyler web team spent most of the last two years gathering information and then working closely with TU Creative Services and Bluecadet to ensure that a dynamic, inspiring, yet functional, responsive, and accessible site would be created and the School's needs would be met. Tyler School of Art is thrilled with the results and the many abilities of the site.

Two GAID graduating MFA students, Emily Colburn and Lydia Nichols, have been awarded a prestigious fellowship from Chronicle Books in San Francisco.
“I applied for this fellowship because working for Chronicle Books would be a dream of mine,” Colburn said. “They create beautiful, contemporary and playful books/products.”
Nichols will be their Children’s Design Fellow, while Colburn will be their Marketing Design Fellow. At first, Colburn applied to be in the Food & Drink department because of her love for food.
“They saw my application and recommended me for the Marketing position, which I’m thrilled about!” Colburn said.
There were only five total fellow positions available this year, so they had to be very competitive.
“I had to submit a printed profile, a statement and a resume,” Colburn said. “I created a book with all my recent graduate work.”

The Urban Workshop, a design and research collective based in Tyler_Architecture, has worked with the Village of Arts and Humanities to develop a plan for its mixed use campus that combines a long‐term vision with catalyzing short‐term design interventions. The project was directed by Prof. Sally Harrison, AIA and Prof. Vojislav Ristic, with students from the Architecture Department of Tyler School of Art, and will continue as an on‐going community design partnership. Digging Deeper was funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts. According to the competition sponsors, Design Corps and Social Economic Environmental Design Network, SEED, the recognized projects “offer tangible evidence of how design is effectively playing a role in addressing the most critical issues around the globe…Each project team carefully identified a community’s needs and priorities, then maximized the use of resources to strategically address these.”
