Professor Micol Hebron and Professor Stephen Berens, of the
Art Department
, were both awarded the prestigious California Community Foundation Getty Fellowship for mid-career artists for 2012. Ten mid-career and ten emerging artist fellowships were awarded (out of 388 applicants!) and Chapman University is the only university represented by two of its faculty.

Professor Hebron
was awarded a fellowship in support of her mixed-media work, performance art, collaborative projects, and interdisciplinary art, writing, and curatorial career.

Professor Berens
was awarded a fellowship in support of his broad ranging photographic practice that includes 15 bodies of work since 2000 and his work on the art journal X-TRA, which he co-founded.

Examples of artworks, artist statements and the biographies of the 2012 fellows are available online in the
CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists virtual art gallery

Congratulations to both professors!
