Bullington Receives Fulbright-Terra Foundation Award

judyChair of the Art Department Dr. Judy Bullington recently received the 2017 Fulbright-Terra Foundation Award in the History of American Art. In addition to conducting research on her topic, “Likeness & Emblems in Early American Portraiture; Garden Motifs in 18th C. Transatlantic Art,” Bullington will be teaching a course at St. Andrews University in Scotland.

Bullington’s project will analyze garden & landscape motifs as a means of self-fashioning in ca. 1740-1840 portraits of merchants, ministers, landowners, women, families and expands on current scholarship through a study of the transatlantic practices of artists and plantsmen who ordered nature.
