Press Release



Featuring work by painters Benjamin Craig and Sophia Kayafas and draughtswoman Valérie Gilbert, this exhibition marks the beginning of each artist’s promising career and the culmination of their year-long fellowships. Each year, the Academy selects three outstanding graduates of its MFA program as Chubb Fellows. The fellowship, sponsored by Chubb, is the highest honor the Academy bestows, and is given to the three graduates who exemplify the Academy’s mission of valorizing technical skill in the service of creating vital contemporary art.
