Professor Brenda Brueggemann wins Terra Foundation Award

The Terra Foundation has awarded a $50,000 grant to Professor Brenda Jo Brueggemann and her team for their exhibit/curation project, Shaped by the American Dream: Deaf History through Deaf Art. There are four members on the team: herself, Tabitha Jacques (Director of the Dyer Art Center, National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Rochester Institute for Technology), Octavia Robinson (History, Gallaudet University), and Erin Moriarity Harrelson (Anthropologist, Gallaudet University). 

Brueggemann will be writing all of the interpretive labels for the artwork and the main essay for the exhibit catalog. The exhibit will first appear in the Dyer Art Center @ RIT. 

Congratulations, Brenda!
