The Department of Art has named four undergraduate art students as recipients of the 2009–10 David R. Bean Prize in Fine Arts. Kimberly Eng (B.F.A. ’11), Taery Kim (B.F.A. ’11), Emma Koh (B.F.A. ’11), and Rachel Shim (B.F.A. ’11) have each been recognized as talented students of art in Europe and are studying with the Cornell in Rome program this spring.

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

The 2010–11 exhibition, which will determine next year’s winners, will be displayed in the fall.
