FACULTY AND STAFF NOTABLES
Jessica Bennett Kincaid, doordinator of Collections and Exhibitions at Hite Art Institute, received a Great Meadows Foundation grant this year and used it to travel to Iceland for research. She studied an exhibition at the National Gallery in Reykjavik called TEXT that focused on artwork and artists who use text and language as a primary or major component in their work. She met with the collector who loaned most of the work, the curator of the exhibition, and several other gallery directors and artists.
