Sandria Hu, whose list of achievements and exhibits is pages long, received news of the fellowship grant through a message on her voicemail.
"I spend all day in the studio painting, and then at the end of the day I sit down and check my messages and there was a voicemail from the president telling me I received the fellowship," Hu laughed.
Hu, who received a B.A. and M.A. in art from San Diego State University and a M.F.A. from Stanford University, plans on using her fellowship on a program she has been working on for two years. The arts faculty from UHCL, University of Hawaii in Hilo, Universidad de Veracruzana in Xalapa, Mexico and University of West Bohemia in Plzen, Czech Republic are all involved in the research and workshop collaboration between the four schools.
