Columbia is pleased to announce a new summer study abroad fellowship for summer 2010 (dates June 25—July 15) with Columbia alumnus Greg Wyatt at the ancient site of Ephesos. The purpose of this summer workshop will be to introduce students to the reflective thought and artistic practices required to draw and paint ancient Greek sites in situ. This workshop will be led under the supervision of Greg Wyatt, Columbia ’71.
Greg Wyatt is a world-renowned sculptor whose works grace sites around the world including Arlington National Cemetery, Shakespeare’s Birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the Elizabethan garden of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, and the Comune di Firenze in Italy.
This summer fellowship will allow, in its pilot year, up to 3 Columbia students to spend time pursuing their own artistic practices as well as academic coursework with Greg, first in Athens (at the Parthenon and other sites) and then at the Crisler Library in Ephesos. By traveling to and studying in Athens first, students will be given the hugely important opportunity to immerse themselves in visual studies in classical architecture in the best way possible. This unique opportunity will allow students’ watercolor and classical form practices to be the foundation for their daily studies and investigations that will follow at Celsus/Ephesus.
For more information and the application, please reach out to Ms. Roach in the Fellowships Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the office in 105 Carman.
Application deadline is Wednesday, April 21st
