SAIC Faculty and Alum Win 2015 Creative Capital Awards

SAIC alum Jennifer Reeder (MFA 1996) and faculty member Maria Gaspar (Contemporary Practices) were recipients of the 2015 Creative Capital awards in the Moving Image and Visual Arts categories. Gaspar was recognized for her Out of Field piece, a collection of outdoor visual and sonic installations that bring experiences and narratives from Cook County Jail into the surrounding neighborhood. Reeder received funding for her As With Knives and Skin project, a feature-length script delving into the lives of those in a rural, racially diverse town in Ohio in the aftermath of a young girl’s disappearance.
