Anna Gimon Betbeze wins Rome Prize for visual arts
Anna Gimon Betbeze, an artist and lecturer in painting/printmaking at the School of Art, won the Harold M. English/Jacob H. Lazarus-Metropolitan Museum of Art Rome Prize for visual arts from the American Academy in Rome.
Winners of Rome Prizes are provided with a fellowship that includes a stipend, a study or studio, and room and board for a period of six months to two years in Rome. Each year, through a national competition, the Rome Prize is awarded to approximately 30 individuals who represent “the highest standard of excellence in the arts and humanities.”
The American Academy in Rome was founded in 1894 as the first graduate school of architecture for the United States. It emerged in its present form — a hybrid center for the arts and humanities — by 1912. An American overseas center for independent study and advanced research, it is a not-for-profit, private entity, and the only academy in Rome not supported primarily or entirely by its government.
