Three days in late May—Wednesday the 25th, Friday the 27th, and Saturday the 28th—see one of the Academy’s oldest and most consistently rewarding traditions, the annual presentation of work by current Rome Prize Fellows in the AAR’s School of Fine Arts.
On Wednesday 25 May (6-9 PM) the Academy’s Open Studios in the McKim, Mead & White building offer the public an opportunity to see the studios of the current Rome Prize Fellows in the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Historic Preservation and Conservation, and Visual Arts. On Friday 27 May (6 PM) the Academy’s Villa Aurelia provides a spectacular setting for a Reading by the two Rome Prize Fellows in Literature. And on Saturday 28 May (this time at 9 PM), the Villa Aurelia again is the setting for a Concert with music composed by the two Rome Prize Fellows in Musical Composition.
