Congratulations to Art History major Samantha Holguin for receiving a Wentz Research Award for 2021-2022! Wentz Scholars receive $4500 to conduct independent research with the guidance of a faculty mentor. About 40 grants are given each year from across the university.

Sam’s research project is titled “Sight and Sound: The Kinetic Sculpture of Dale McKinney and the Use of Audio,” and will examine the large collection of audio tapes that McKinney has left behind and begin the setup of a digital resource to be used in the future. The goal in the end is to have the reels of tapes be catalogued and available to listen to in a digital platform that will serve as a way to safely archive the work. She will be working with Dr. Louise Siddons.
