Visual artist Carrie Scanga ’99 has been awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, which will support her studio practice for a year. Scanga’s work, which often uses paper as both a support and a sculptural medium, explores “the relationship between our internal physical sense of occupying bodies and our perceptions of occupying architectural space.” She has been a resident at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Mass.; New Hampshire’s MacDowell Colony, Artspace, of Raleigh, N.C.; and Sculpture Space in Utica, N.Y. Her work has also been supported by fellowship grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation.
