The Benny Andrews Award

PLEASE NOTE: We are delayed on the announcement of 2020 fellowships due to COVID-19 and hope to make the announcements in September 2020.

The Benny Andrews Award provides funding for researchers exploring the collection of visual artist, teacher, activist, critic, and writer Benny Andrews.  The Rose Library holdings include correspondence, manuscript materials, photographs, negatives, exhibit files, journals, printed materials including books and art catalogs. Materials related to Andrews’s exploration of the social, political, and cultural development of the United States and the experiences of the marginalized and oppressed are readily accessible. The Rose Library holdings also include audio-visual materials, artwork, and other Andrews family-related correspondence and papers.
