Five art students win Bean Prize to study abroad

June 5, 2012

Five undergraduate art students have been selected as recipients of the 2012–13 David R. Bean Prize in Fine Arts and will study with the Cornell in Rome program this fall. Jon Atkinson (B.F.A.'14), Vincent Chong (B.F.A.'14), Jihyun “Joy” Jeong (B.F.A.'14), Natani Notah (B.F.A.'14), and Christine Pan (B.F.A.'14) were chosen by a jury of art faculty from a collection of student work.

A range of work including video, lithographs, Intaglio, and digital prints were among the submissions.

The prize was established in memory of David Richard Bean ’71 by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bean ’43. David graduated from Cornell with a degree in government administration. While a student, he spent time in Europe and was enchanted with Florence, and had planned to study art. The annual prize provides financial support for travel in Europe, and each prize recipient is given a copy of Bean’s writings and artwork.
