M.F.A. Student Young-Min Kang Receives 2004 Roy Crane Award

Installation Artist Honored with Award Endowed by Alum Cartoonist

Young-Min Kang, an M.F.A. candidate in the Department of Art and Art History, has been named the recipient of the 2004 Roy Crane Award. Young-Min blends the mediums of sculpture and photography to create complex, ambitious, and totally original installations.

The award, which was established in 1965 by famed cartoonist and university alum Roy Crane, gives $3,000 each year to an undergraduate or graduate student who produces creative work. The award rotates yearly between visual art, music, and creative writing, and "is intended to encourage originality and creativity rather than pedantic excellence." Faculty members nominate students, who are then considered by the Roy Crane Committee, chaired by Department of Art and Art History professor Bill Wiman.
