The Nathan Cummings Graduate Summer Travel Award was established by the Nathan Cummings Foundation to give talented visual artists in the ASU School of Art the experience of the Grand Tour, a tradition in the education of the whole person. For the visual artist, this experience is considered a necessity, and the role it plays in the life of a young artist is well documented in modern history. This “application exhibition” showcases the artwork of those students who apply from various disciplines and also includes a statement of intent. Artists are meant to create proposals for summer travel to further their artistic visions and expand their worldview in relation to their particular craft and specific concentration. After a review of the work and proposals, ASU faculty members choose who will be awarded travel grants for this summer to their proposed locations.
Gallery occupancy is limited to allow for social distancing. Face coverings are required in all campus buildings and outdoor spaces.
Adjusted gallery hours for spring 2021:
