SCE faculty member Allan Wexler has been named a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow for 2016. Fellows are recognized for their exceptional creative abilities in the arts. Each year the Foundation selects 200 grantees from a pool of between 3,500 and 4,000 applicants. The purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible.

Allan Wexler has worked in the fields of architecture, design and fine art for forty five years. Allan’s works explore human activity and the built environment. He works as an investigator using series, permutations and chance rather than searching for definitive solutions. He makes buildings, furniture, vessels and utensils as backdrops and props for everyday, ordinary human activity.
