Fellows' Annual Events

Three days in late May—Tuesday the 29th, Wednesday the 30th, and Thursday the 31st—see one of the Academy’s oldest and most consistently rewarding traditions, the annual presentation of work by current Rome Prize Fellows in the American Academy’s School of Fine Arts.

On Tuesday 29 May (6-9pm) the Academy’s Open Studios in the McKim, Mead & White building offer the public an opportunity to see the studios of the current Rome Prize Fellows in the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Historic Preservation and Conservation, and Visual Arts. On Wednesday 30 May (9pm), the Academy’s Villa Aurelia provides a spectacular setting for a Concert with music composed by the two Rome Prize Fellows in Musical Composition. And on Thursday 31 May (6pm) the Villa Aurelia is again the setting for a Reading by the two Rome Prize Fellows in Literature.

William B. Hart Poet-in-Residence Robert Hass will read from his work during Open Studios in the Salone from 7pm to 7:30pm and AAR community members Claire Brazeau, Takae Ohnishi, and Kailan Rubinoff will present a concert entitled A Tour of Baroque Music from 7:45pm to 8:15pm. In addition, Joseph Brodsky Memorial Fellow Dmitry Kaminker’s Rome Sustainable Tower Project will be on display in the American Academy Gallery.
