Professor of Cinema Arts Awarded Andy Warhol Grant


Dr. Terri Francis, Associate Professor of Cinematic Arts and Associate Dean of Inclusion and Outreach for UM’s School of Communication is recognized for her contributions to literary studies.

Dr. Terri Francis, Center for Global Black Studies faculty affiliate and Professor of Cinema Arts, has been awarded the Andy Warhol Foundation Art Writer's Grant. 

“The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant supports a dynamic range of writing about the visual arts. The writing of the 2022 grantees engages historical and contemporary artistic practices that challenge, illuminate, and expand on urgent issues of the present. Thanks to the rigorous, adventurous, and generous approach of these arts writers, the concerns of contemporary visual artists and their communities can become part of the broader cultural discourses that shape our

contemporary moment,” said Joel Wachs, President, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Dr. Terri Francis’ book, Make that Art!: Kevin Jerome Everson’s Body of Work, is one of seven books among the 20 winners that were selected from over 400 applications. Here's a link to her award-winning book’s description,
