Corey Antis Awarded Warren Rosser Faculty Fellowship Award
Associate Professor of Painting Corey Antis’ proposal to explore book arts and paper materials in western Japan, study Chinese ink frottages at the Field Museum in Chicago and create a new body of work recently earned him the inaugural Warren Rosser Faculty Fellowship Award. For the next two years he will receive financial support to pursue his project, which will ultimately influence KCAI drawing electives in book arts.
“I am grateful and humbled by my selection for this award. It echoes the values that we try to share with our students – that a creative practice requires individual commitment but also a strong degree of collaboration between our roles as practicing artists and educators. It is an honor to be given the opportunity to pursue a project that would otherwise not be possible without this support,” said Antis.
To be eligible for the fellowship, full-time Painting faculty members submit a proposal for research in studio practice that will develop outcomes for excellence in teaching. At the end of the two-year cycle, they present their outcomes at a public forum.
Former William T. Kemper Distinguished Professor of Painting Warren Rosser, who joined KCAI in 1972, is well-known in the art community for inspiring generations of painters. He retired from teaching in 2017, but his contributions live on through this award. “KCAI faculty work very hard — they are serious artists and their art gives an authenticity to their teaching. I wanted to establish an award that would not only help shape their studio practice but also crossover to the painting curriculum and students,” said Rosser.
We are excited to share with you Ground Breaking, KCAI’s annual President’s Report taking a look back at all that we achieved together in 2017-18.

As a result of poor weather-related conditions, the Kansas City Art Institute will operate on a delayed start on Tuesday, November 27th. All classes will begin and campus offices will open at 10 a.m. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors are encouraged to exercise caution throughout the day as roads and sidewalks may still be icy.
