Joey Fauerso, a professor in the School of Art and Design at Texas State University, has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts for Fine Arts by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

Guggenheim Fellowships are awarded to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. Fellowships are intended to further the development of scholars and artists by assisting them to engage in research in any field of knowledge and creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions.

"I am so honored to receive a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Fine Arts category, and to be amongst such a distinguished group of scholars and artists," Fauerso said. "This fellowship affirms and supports the work I have been making for the last 20 years, and will allow the work to grow and change in new and ambitious directions. Thank you to the Guggenheim Foundation for their support and vision."  

Fauerso is among 180 fellowship recipients chosen from a group of almost 2,500 applicants. In all, 51 scholarly disciplines and artistic fields, 31 states and the District of Columbia, and four Canadian provinces are represented in this year’s class of fellows, who range in age from 33 to 75. Nearly 60 fellows have no academic affiliation or hold adjunct or part-time positions.
