Presented to an outstanding graduate student nominated by the faculty.
Stephanie Grimm is the art and art history librarian for the Mason University Libraries, and a current student in the art history MA program. She previously earned an MSI from the University of Michigan, with a focus on preservation and art librarianship, and a BFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts. Her research interests center on various forms of the book and artists’ publications, including artists’ books, zines, and comics, and she serves as one of the curators of Mason’s Artists’ Book Collection. Through the MA program and after, she plans to continue examining the ways that institutions shape book art reading and viewing experiences, underpinned by her ongoing work with Mason’s collections and researchers.
