To give back to the community and foster artistic talent for future generation, LIFE Culture Group has established the Lora Carney LIFE Culture Award at University of Toronto (see Notes). We have formed the Award committee on the recommendation of the Department of Arts, Culture and Media from University of Toronto. This committee includes the Chair, Department of Arts, Culture and Media, and Program Directors from art history, studio, and arts management. This Award is bestowed to students at University of Toronto entering third or fourth year and enrolled in a major in Art History or one of the fields of Fine Arts including studio and/or arts management on the basic of outstanding potential for career related to the arts. Preference will be given to the candidate who can demonstrate open mindedness and innovation through their work. Academic achievement will also be considered.

 

Notes:

  1. Through a generous pledge to the University of Toronto from the LIFE Culture Group, an expendable fund will be created to support the Lora Carney LIFE Culture Award for students in the Department of Arts, Culture and Media at UT. The Fund will support one $5,000 scholarship (Lora Carney LIFE Culture Award) annually for a student at UT entering third or fourth year and who is enrolled in a major or specialist program in art history or another of the arts fields including studio, arts management, theatre, and/or music, on the basis of outstanding potential for a career related to the arts. The successful candidate will have a passion for art and a proven commitment to the development of community through the arts, and to the pursuit of freedom of thought across cultural boundaries. The donor agrees to provide $5,000 per year until further notice to fund the Lora Carney LIFE Culture Award.

  2. The conditions for this scholarship were created by UT alumnus, Mr. C.P. Fenke Feng, to honour the work of Professor Lora Carney, UT art historian. Lora Senechal Carney’s research in Canadian modern art has involved many years of reading letters, journals, artists' statements, newspaper and magazine articles written by Canadian artists and critics from 1930 to 1960. In her work she considers how these writings explore and illuminate the relation of art and ideas about art to their rapidly changing historical, social, and political backgrounds. This is the subject of her chapter in Visual Art in Canada (Oxford University Press 2010) and of a book manuscript. Her other major field of research is contemporary North American public art, and collaborative art public art projects in particular. She co-edited "Landscape, Cultural Spaces, Ecology," a special issue of the art history journal RACAR (2010), and her article in that issue is a study of a collaborative reclamation project in Pennsylvania. She was teaching modern and contemporary art at UT when she retired in June 2013.

  3. Fenke was positively impacted both personally and professionally through the mentorship and teaching he received from Professor Carney during his academic career at UT. He attributes his love for art and the success he has enjoyed as an artist, to the guidance and encouragement he received from Professor Carney. He has great admiration and respect for her open mindedness, her strength of character, and her ability to inspire innovative thought and expression in her students. The conditions of this scholarship were created in recognition of Professor Carney’s work and her talent as a teacher, and it was created in 2013 in tribute of the year she retired from UT.
