Katharine Egan '06, who recently returned from the European portion of her Eric Cohler '81 Internship and Travel Award, showed slides of her travels to a group of Arts and Architecture faculty and students on Monday, Feb. 20.
She was the 2005 recipient of the award that includes 10 days in two European cities of the student's choosing after a two-week internship at Eric Cohler's interior design firm in New York City, established in 1991, and specializing in interior design and restoration.
Egan went to Venice and Paris to study Gothic architecture and John Ruskin's “theories of architecture and society through the gothic monuments … and their environs.”
Applications for the 2006 Cohler award are due by Thursday, March 23. The competition is open to rising seniors who are majoring in art history, studio art, and architecture may apply. Applications are available from any Arts/Architecture faculty member and at the Salisbury Center for Career Services in Trinity Hall.
