Nicole Koltick, Architecture + Interiors Assistant Professor, will hold a prestigious residency this summer at the MacDowell Colony, a highly selective art colony in New Hampshire that selects its fellows based solely on artistic excellence. Previous fellows include the winners of at least 61 Pulitzer Prizes. Notable fellows have included Thornton Wilder, who wrote Our Town during his residency, Aaron Copland, who composed Appalachian Spring and Leonard Bernstein who composed MASS while at the colony. More recent fellows include Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections), Jeffrey Eugenides (Middlesex) and Alice Sebold (The Lovely Bones). During her 6-week residency Koltick will develop a book that explores the intersection of the natural and the built environment.
