Micah Danges Named 2015 Pew Fellow

Fine Arts’ Micah Danges is among the 12 new artists selected by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage (The Center) to receive a 2015 PEW Fellowship.

Supporting PennDesign as manager of the the Silverstein Color Center within the Fine Arts Department, Danges is also an accomplished visual artist. His work hovers between image and object, pushing the limit of what a photograph can be and using optical distortions that create abstract scenes from everyday items and places, in a distinctive merging of materials and process. He has recently exhibited at Vox Populi and Moore College of Art.

“Our 2015 grantees exemplify the diverse and dynamic cultural life of our region,” said Paula Marincola, the Center’s executive director. “As we reflect on the past 10 years of grantmaking in this vibrant community, we also look forward to the extraordinary cultural experiences this talented and ambitious group of artists and organizations will bring to Greater Philadelphia’s audiences.”

In total, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage awarded more than $9.6 million in funding for 12 new Pew Fellowships, 34 Project grants and three Advancement grants.
