 Moldwin Prize Provides Art/Sci Student Residency Anna Brooks, Joe Iovino, Prof. Mark Moldwin

The Moldwin Prize, developed by Climate & Space Professor Mark Moldwin in conjunction with the U-M ArtsEngine program is accepting applications for the Winter 2018 term. 

The Moldwin Prize is "Art/Sci Student Residency program offers unique opportunities designed to encourage interdisciplinary learning and creative production by exposing students to life and work in an alternate discipline’s maker space – i.e. the artist in the engineering lab, the engineer in the artist’s studio or performance space." 

From the Stamps School of Art & Design: 

Artists in Residence: Stamps Students in the Space Lab

It’s reasonable to expect that the average person doesn’t dwell too much on the fact that the sun is perpetually flinging lethal particles of itself at Earth — unless that person is building a magnetometer to measure the strength of the earth’s protective magnetic field. Such is the case with University of Michigan Professor Mark Moldwin and his team of researchers, climate scientists, and two undergraduate students from the Stamps School of Art & Design: Anna Brooks (Interarts BFA ’18) and Joe Iovino (BFA ’18).

The Moldwin Prize is made possible by a donation from Mark and his wife, with matching funds from ArtsEngine. In addition, Moldwin says “One of the Deans of the participating schools said they would match as well, so we may have two artists/composers/choreographers in the Space Research Building this semester.”

Application Deadline for Winter 2018 is Friday, November 17, 2017.
