Art history major in the Lamar Dodd School of Art Nina Goodall-Bernal has been awarded a multi-year Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship, among only 20 given nationwide by the Andrew Mellon Foundation through 5 American museums:
Goodall-Bernal participated in a High Museum Summer Academy this May and will spend two additional years working with High Museum curators to receive mentorship and training during the academic year and intensive internships each summer until her graduation from UGA. The fellowship also includes travel to meet with other award recipients at museums in Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston and St. Louis. During her fellowship, Goodall will continue participating in UGA's CURO program with Art History professor, Nell Andrew, to prepare an honors thesis on Latin American Modern art.
Fantastic news for one of the many outstanding undergraduate scholars in the Dodd and for our terrific school of art faculty who inspire students to excel. Undergraduate research opportunities reach into every sphere of campus, and our best students are winning some the most prestigious grants and fellowships in the nation. Way to go.
