2018 Menschel Fellowship Exhibition


The Benjamin Menschel Fellowship Program to Support Creative Inquiry was endowed by a grant given to The Cooper Union by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation in 1994 to support work in the fields of art, architecture, design and engineering. The program is designed to provide students in their penultimate year of study the opportunity to travel and research specific areas of personal interest. This year's fellows are Leslie Dougrou, Gabriel Munnich, Austin Richard Mayer, Kelsey Mitchell, Natalia Oliveri, Rachel Rosheger, Ida Pruitt and Zuzanna Sochaczewska . The exhibition includes projects on a range of cultural, environmental and social issues in Northern Ghana, California's border with Mexico, Florence and Siena, Italy, The Great Dismal Swamp of North Carolina, and the American West.

The exhibition is free and open to the public from 11AM through 7PM
