Melanie Stevens Awarded Stumptown Artist Fellowship
March 15, 2018
Congratulations to MFA in Visual Studies '17 alumna Melanie Stevens who was recently honored as the third recipient of the new Stumptown Artist Fellowship. Stumptown designed this new visual arts initiative with the understanding that producing high-quality, large-scale work is often a big financial undertaking for working artists.
Melanie Stevens is the co-founder, editor, and an instructor of Miss Anthology, an organization that supports and publishes racially and economically diverse young comic artists who identify as female or LGBTQIA+. Stevens is the co-curator of Nat Turner Project, and also the creator of the upcoming graphic novel series, WaterShed, a love and death story about America through the lens of race.
