For Release: May 12, 2010
Michele Kremers, Marylhurst University interior design instructor, has been selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Scholar. She will attend one of 10 study opportunities supported by the NEH.
Kremers, selected from a competitive pool of college instructors from around the country, will participate in a workshop entitled "Along the Shore: Changing and Preserving the Landmarks of Brooklyn's Industrial Waterfront." The one-week program will be held at New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York and is directed by Dr. Richard Hanley.
"The NEH summer scholar program will provide Michele with an opportunity to pursue in depth studies related to her craft," said Nancy Hiss, Marylhurst University interior design program director. "This intensive work will contribute to her understanding of the relationship between historic preservation and contemporary design and planning. This is a relevant topic that bridges social, economic and sustainability concerns."
The endowment is a federal agency that each summer supports Landmarks of American History and Culture workshops, enabling faculty to work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.
