    SMFA Traveling Scholars

    Presented by at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

    April 10 - May 31, 2010


    SMFA Traveling Scholars

    "SMFA Traveling Scholars" showcases work by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston’s (SMFA), 2008 Traveling Scholarship Award recipients. Featuring paintings, installation, photography, mixed media and video, the exhibition provides fresh insight into the investigations of today’s young artists and characterizes the creative risk-taking fostered at the SMFA.


    Lizi Brown, who traveled to Europe, presents a series of paintings forming a narrative; photographer Michael Bühler-Rose, who spent time in India, continues exploring issues surrounding the exotic; Liz Cohen revisited Germany to expand on her Bodywork project; Wendy Jean Hyde’s installation is based on her research in Iceland and Christopher Lamberg-Karlovsky explored New England, expanding his installation of paintings.

    The SMFA’s Traveling Scholarship Awards is one of the largest art school travel grant programs in the country. Since 1899, the Museum School has given these awards—annually totaling $80,000 to $100,000—to select alumni and students to further develop their work through travel and artistic exploration, culminating in an exhibit at the MFA.
