Burton Delivers Lowenfeld Lecture at NAEA Convention — Burton, Abeles, and Horowitz Receive the Barkan Memorial Award
Judith M. Burton, Professor of Art Education, is the first person to receive both the Lowenfeld Award and Manuel Barkan Memorial Award from the National Art Education Association (NAEA) during the same year.
Established in 1960 by friends and former students of Viktor Lowenfeld, the Lowenfeld Award honors an individual who over the years has made significant contributions to art education. The recipient presents the Lowenfeld Lecture at the NAEA national convention.
Professor Burton delivered the Lowenfeld Lecture on March 15 at the Hilton New York and Towers, the NAEA convention headquarters.
At the same convention, Professor Burton also received the Manuel Barkan Memorial Award on March 17, along with Harold F. Abeles, Professor of Music Education, and Robert Horowitz, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music Education. They received the award for their article that appeared in Studies in Art Education (Vol. 41, No. 3, Spring 2000) "Learning In and Through the Arts: The Question of Transfer," a study of The Center of Arts Education Research. The study was supported by the GE Fund and The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
This project also appeared in Champions of Change - The Impact of the Arts on Learning, edited by Edward B. Fiske, for the Arts Education Partnership, formerly known as the Goals 2000 Arts Education Partnership, and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, which works to encourage private sector support for the arts and humanities.
The Manuel Barkan Memorial Award is an annual award of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), given to individuals who, through their published work in either Art Education or Studies in Art Education, have contributed a product of scholarly merit to the field.
Nearly 50 graduate students and alumni of the Art and Art Education program presented papers at the NAEA convention.previous page
