Two University at Buffalo architecture faculty members have been awarded highly competitive grants through the Artist Fellowship Program of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
They are among only 91 artists or collaborative teams selected from a pool of nearly 3,000 applicants statewide.
The program is open to artists at all stages in their careers, and each fellow or team receives an unrestricted cash grant of $7,000 to use in any way to further their creative work.
Hwang will use the award to continue work on “Habitat Wall,” a sculptural habitat for birds and bats that addresses the condition of habitat loss in cities.
… Maher will use the prize to continue work on his Fargo House, an experimental art/architectural project he has been developing within a house formerly slated for demolition on Buffalo’s West Side.
