Mount Mercy University Associate Professor of Art Kathryn Hagy has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar South/Central Asia Regional Travel Grant.
The grant will allow her to spend two weeks this December and January in Sri Lanka, where she will lead a printmaking workshop at the University of Visual and Performing Arts in Colombo, Sri Lanka. She'll also lead a creativity workshop through the Sri Lankan Fulbright Commission.
Hagy is currently living and working in Kathmandu, Nepal, after receiving a Fulbright Scholar Grant by the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board last June. She is developing her artwork, investigating Nepal's art community and conducting workshops with students at Sirjana College of Fine Arts, Tribhuvan University's Lalit Kala campus, and Kathmandu University Centre for Art and Design.
While in Nepal, Hagy has served as a resource on a number of art topics as well as participated in an international art conference. Her work and expertise has led her to be placed in several local Kathmandu newspapers.
Hagy has been blogging about her experiences overseas, and will also present a special forum on her research during a Fulbright Lecture on March 3 at 7:00 p.m. in Flaherty Community Room, Basile Hall.
