Kendall College of Art and Design senior Dustin Farnsworth has been awarded a $15,000 Windgate Fellowship. This is one of the most prestigious awards available to people pursuing work in American crafts and the decorative arts. To be eligible to receive a fellowship, a student must attend an institution that the Windgate Foundation invites to apply. This year, the Foundation invited 60 institutions to submit two applications each. Of the 120 applicants, the Windgate Foundation selected just 10 winners from across the nation. The award allows the recipient to engage in significant studio work, which Farnsworth will pursue in Asheville, N.C. Farnsworth is the third winner from Kendall, a testament to the academic and creative excellence fostered by the College.
