Frances Louise “Misty” Dailey was a Studio Art major in the College who died during her senior year in 1978. Her faculty advisor, Professor Clifford Chieffo, remembers Misty as a joyful, outgoing, and athletic art student, who had been planning a career in art therapy. Misty loved children and she wholeheartedly embodied the Georgetown ideal of service to others. Following her untimely death, the Department of Art and Art History faculty, with the support of her family, classmates, and friends, established the Misty Dailey awards programs for Art and Art History majors and minors in order to recognize and honor exceptional creative and intellectual work by Georgetown students.
The Dailey Family Travel Award supports research travel for sophomores and juniors who will be conducting research in the U.S. or abroad during the summer or following academic year. The Misty Dailey Award recognizes outstanding senior projects in studio art, and art history research and shorter papers. The winners of both awards are announced at the Misty Dailey Awards Ceremony each spring attended by members of the Dailey family, cherished friends of the Department of Art and Art History.
The application deadline this year is April 8, 2013 (Monday). Downloadable application forms with submission instructions are available below. The Misty Dailey Awards Ceremony celebrating the winners will be held on April 24, 2013.
