Introducing the Dorothy F. Glass ICMS Travel Award

The Italian Art Society is pleased to announce the creation of a new award honoring the career of Dr. Dorothy F. Glass. 


Many of us in the Italian Art Society know Dorothy’s work and her incredible contribution to the field of medieval sculpture. A significant part of Dorothy’s gifts to the field has come in her steadfast commitment to service, which took on many forms such as the numerous editorial boards and committees she served on to foster scholarly endeavors across the academic ranks. She even served as the Chair of our Nominating Committee (2006-2008) and on the Program Committee (2013-2016).  


To celebrate Dorothy’s legacy, the IAS has created a travel award in her name. The Dorothy F. Glass Travel Award will support an emerging scholar in the field of sculpture to attend the ICMS conference in 2023. Full details on how to apply for the award will be listed on the IAS website and circulated via the listserv. 


For those interested in supporting the Dorothy F. Glass Travel Award, a contribution can be made to the IAS via our PayPal using the following link: (paypal.me/ItalianArtSociety).
