Megan Murphy Receives Arts Fellowship

Megan Murphy, art alum, was chosen as one of five recipients of the Idaho Commission on the Arts' annual fellowship awards.

Excerpt from an article by Dana Oland in the Idaho Statesman,
June 9, 2014.

An ICA Fellowship is one of the highest recognitions an artist can receive in this state. It's a reward for talent, creativity and perseverance, and comes with a cash award with no strings attached for the artists to use to sustain their careers. This year, the awards go to artists working in craft, design and fine arts. Winners receive $5,000, honorable mentions receive $1,000.

Every year, the fellowships — chosen by an out-of-state panel — cycle through the disciplines of performing, literary and visual arts. They're given in conjunction with grants for folk and traditional arts apprenticeships, and arts grants for arts education and programs.

Megan Murphy blends multiple media — oils, digital photography and others — to create images that capture an emotional echo of forgotten events. She layers media and meaning on glass as she visually excavates the geography of historical events.
