The Asian and Asian American Studies Institute and the Asian American Cultural Center are pleased to invite one and all to join us for the open showcasing of artwork produced by University of Connecticut students competing for the 2016 Fred Ho Prize.

This year’s competition is indebted to Visiting Associate Professor in Art and Art History Rossitza Skortcheva Donesky for guiding the participants through the challenge of primary research in the Fred Ho Collection, with support from the Dodd Center’s Curator for Multimedia Collections Kristin Eshelman.

The resulting art projects showcase a variety of materials and approaches that underscore the political and cultural force and creativity that Fred Ho’s legacy continues to inspire.

At the April 4th Opening, monetary awards and recognition as First, Second, Third Prize, and Honorable Mention will be announced.

About the Fred Ho Prize / Awarded every other year by the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute since 1999, the Fred Ho Prize encourages all University of Connecticut undergraduates, regardless of major, semester standing or enrollment in Asian American Studies courses, to submit a project based on primary research conducted in the Fred Ho Special Collection at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. The total amount of the biennial prize is usually $500. The winner is announced at the close of Spring Semester.

The Fred Ho Prize was last awarded as part of a posthumous tribute to the late Fred Ho, whose courageous battle with terminal colon cancer ended on April 12, 2014.

Contact the Asian/Asian American Studies Institute for more information about the Fred Ho Prize for students and the Fred Ho Fellowship for faculty and independent researchers.
