Two New Haven artists receive Climate Engagement Fellowship

September 29, 2022

The Yale Art School, in cooperation with the Yale School of Architecture and the Yale School of the Environment, is pleased to announce the recipients of a fellowship in Climate Engagement through Art in Cities: Victoria Martinez (MFA 2020) and Daniel Pizarro (MFA 2012).

An opportunity for artists who have lived in New Haven for at least two years, the fellows will bring together art, civic engagement, and new technological innovations—specifically cooling mural paint that reflects UV and NIR radiation—to develop art installations that will help specific ‘hot’ neighborhoods in New Haven while simultaneously creating interest and raising awareness about climate change. The School of Art extends its sincere thanks to the team of co-applicants for this grant, including faculty and staff from the Yale Schools of the Environment, Architecture, and Nursing; and representatives of city government in New Haven for making this collaboration, and these fellowships, possible.
