The Art Academy of Cincinnati is pleased to announce that Cara Gallagher and Carly Simendinger are the recipients of the 2018 Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Award.

Within the upcoming year, Cara Gallagher will pursue performance work in England, and Carly Simendinger will travel to India.

The Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Award is a juried prize given to competing senior students with a 3.0 GPA or higher. Graduating seniors must submit a proposal of how this travel award will impact their practice and research, along with assembling a budget and portfolio of current work. The Art Academy faculty cast a blind vote for all portfolios worthy of the award, and the winners with the highest votes are selected. It is a prestigious honor to aid our best graduating seniors in furthering their artistic practice as they enter the post-graduate world.
