During the 2017–18 academic year, the Yale School of Art will welcome four Hayden Distinguished Fellows to campus. This new fellowship, generously made possible by the Hayden Fund for Art and Ideas, will bring globally recognized leaders in art and the academy to Yale to work with students as teachers, mentors, and critics. The Fellows’ engagement will strengthen a critical link between the Yale School of Art and the international artistic community, as Fellows give public lectures, teach classes, and participate in studio visits and critiques. For full biographies of each fellow, please visit our website.
