The American Academy in Rome has named Garrett Bradley, David Brooks, James Casebere, Sarah Crowner, and John Jesurun as winners of the 2019–2020 Rome Prizes in the category for visual art. A total of 36 Rome Prizes were awarded this year to American and Italian artists and scholars, who receive a stipend plus support to live and work for five to 11 months at the Academy’s Rome campus.

The winners in the art category were selected by a jury that included Adam Weinberg, director of the Whitney Museum in New York; Chon Noriega, curator and professor at UCLA; artist Cecily Brown; and others.

The 10 other disciplines supported by the Academy’s Rome Prize are literature; music composition; architecture; landscape architecture; design; historic preservation and conservation; ancient studies; medieval studies; Renaissance and early modern studies; and modern Italian studies.

The American Academy also announced the six recipients of its Italian Fellowships, with artist Corinna Gosmaro and architect Giovanna Silva among them.
