F R O M T H E P R E S I D E N TChang<strong>in</strong>g LivesAt 160,<strong>Moore</strong> <strong>College</strong><strong>of</strong><strong>Art</strong> & <strong>Design</strong> isclearer than ever before<strong>in</strong> its vision to educateartists <strong>and</strong> designersfor careers <strong>in</strong> thecreative fields.These are challeng<strong>in</strong>g times. The recent economic downturn affects <strong>Moore</strong>, just as it affects all members <strong>of</strong>our community. Fortunately, <strong>Moore</strong> entered this period <strong>of</strong> uncerta<strong>in</strong>ty <strong>in</strong> a relatively strong position. Ourf<strong>in</strong>ancial strength is the result <strong>of</strong> sound management, generous gifts from donors, <strong>and</strong> conservative expansion<strong>and</strong> <strong>in</strong>vestment strategies. A $30 million capital campaign has been <strong>in</strong>vested <strong>in</strong> first-class facilities, technology<strong>and</strong> endowed scholarships. <strong>Moore</strong>’s small endowment, which was $11 million before the recent downturn,has been <strong>in</strong>vested <strong>in</strong> a diversified portfolio, reduc<strong>in</strong>g the impact <strong>of</strong> the market’s decl<strong>in</strong>e.At 160, <strong>Moore</strong> <strong>College</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Art</strong> & <strong>Design</strong> is clearer than ever before <strong>in</strong> its vision to educate artists <strong>and</strong>designers for careers <strong>in</strong> the creative fields. <strong>Moore</strong>’s mission was born <strong>in</strong> 1848, a time <strong>of</strong> change. FounderSarah Peter knew the value <strong>of</strong> education <strong>and</strong> began the school to change the lives <strong>of</strong> women <strong>and</strong> providethem with mean<strong>in</strong>gful <strong>and</strong> marketable skills.<strong>Moore</strong> is chang<strong>in</strong>g lives through its unique bachelor <strong>of</strong> f<strong>in</strong>e arts for women, coeducational cont<strong>in</strong>u<strong>in</strong>geducation <strong>and</strong> certificate programs as well as classes for children grades 1–12. <strong>Moore</strong>’s commitment toeducation will grow this summer to <strong>in</strong>clude new coeducational graduate programs. These masters’ degreeswill focus on educat<strong>in</strong>g students for careers <strong>in</strong> the arts through three unique areas <strong>of</strong> study:• MA <strong>in</strong> <strong>Art</strong> Education with an emphasis <strong>in</strong> special populations• MFA <strong>in</strong> Studio <strong>Art</strong> (with an <strong>in</strong>ternational component)• MFA <strong>in</strong> Interior <strong>Design</strong> (for <strong>in</strong>dividuals with a bachelor’s degree <strong>in</strong> fields other than <strong>in</strong>terior design)As we go forward, we will need to make difficult decisions about how we use our resources <strong>and</strong> setpriorities. I want to assure you that our core mission will be our prime focus. We rema<strong>in</strong> deeply committedto provid<strong>in</strong>g the highest quality educational experience for our students <strong>in</strong>clud<strong>in</strong>g:• Excellent <strong>and</strong> excit<strong>in</strong>g opportunities <strong>in</strong> the visual arts for students <strong>of</strong> all ages.• F<strong>in</strong>ancial aid to students to ensure a talented <strong>and</strong> diverse student body.• An outst<strong>and</strong><strong>in</strong>g faculty dedicated to the mission <strong>of</strong> the <strong>College</strong>.• Actively support<strong>in</strong>g our students’ career goals through the Locks Career Center.In these challeng<strong>in</strong>g times, we will consider thoughtfully the potential impacts <strong>and</strong> plan accord<strong>in</strong>gly.I assure you that we’re do<strong>in</strong>g just that, with the health <strong>of</strong> the <strong>College</strong> <strong>and</strong> the best <strong>in</strong>terest <strong>of</strong> our studentsforemost <strong>in</strong> our m<strong>in</strong>ds. With cont<strong>in</strong>ued prudent f<strong>in</strong>ancial management, I am confident that <strong>Moore</strong> willcont<strong>in</strong>ue to be a leader <strong>in</strong> the visual arts community <strong>and</strong> be a vibrant <strong>and</strong> f<strong>in</strong>ancially sound <strong>in</strong>stitution.Chang<strong>in</strong>g lives is our “bus<strong>in</strong>ess.” Educat<strong>in</strong>g for creative careers <strong>in</strong> the visual arts is our first priority.S<strong>in</strong>cerely,Happy Craven Fern<strong>and</strong>ez,President2


W<strong>in</strong>ter 2009Life-Chang<strong>in</strong>g Fellowships<strong>Moore</strong>FirstEdnaAcker Leonhardt ’23was the first woman to designfabric for automobile <strong>in</strong>teriors.<strong>Moore</strong>’s found<strong>in</strong>g mother, Sarah Peter, knew the value <strong>of</strong> education<strong>and</strong> the impact travel <strong>and</strong> workplace experience could have <strong>in</strong> prepar<strong>in</strong>gstudents for careers. She even f<strong>in</strong>anced travel experiences for afew students <strong>and</strong> advocated for early co-ops, negotiat<strong>in</strong>g with<strong>Philadelphia</strong>’s publishers <strong>and</strong> manufacturers to purchase studentwoodcuts, designs <strong>and</strong> engrav<strong>in</strong>gs.Peter’s goal was to advance women’s rights through education <strong>and</strong>improve their economic st<strong>and</strong><strong>in</strong>g. While learn<strong>in</strong>g a skill or trade wasparamount, Peter also understood that if American designers were tocompete with Europe, there was much to be ga<strong>in</strong>ed from experienc<strong>in</strong>glife beyond the classroom.S<strong>in</strong>ce 1899, the <strong>College</strong> has provided <strong>in</strong>ternational, national as wellas regional travel fellowship opportunities for students. Fellowshipsallow students to broaden their view <strong>of</strong> themselves <strong>and</strong> the worldaround them from outside their own cultural, social <strong>and</strong> politicalperspective <strong>and</strong> to explore the universal language <strong>of</strong> art <strong>and</strong> design.The experiences <strong>of</strong> two textile designers: one from the class <strong>of</strong> 1923,the other from the class <strong>of</strong> 2009, show how travel fellowships <strong>and</strong><strong>Moore</strong> are chang<strong>in</strong>g lives.When Edna Leonhardt graduated <strong>in</strong> 1923, The Public Ledgercarried a photo <strong>of</strong> Leonhardt with the announcement that she hadreceived the PAB Widener European Travel Fellowship. The time wasjust three years after the 19th Amendment granted women the rightto vote <strong>in</strong> the US, one year after the discovery <strong>of</strong> K<strong>in</strong>g Tut’s tomb<strong>and</strong> just as automobiles were becom<strong>in</strong>g more widely affordable toAmerican families.Textile design senior SarahWray <strong>in</strong> the dedicated senior textile design studio.3


M O O R E AT 1 6 0The competitive PAB Widener Fellowship<strong>in</strong> design provided a year’s study <strong>in</strong>London, “under a pr<strong>of</strong>essional designer<strong>and</strong>…tra<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g <strong>in</strong> the studio <strong>of</strong> one <strong>of</strong>the best design<strong>in</strong>g firms <strong>in</strong> the world,”accord<strong>in</strong>g to Theodore C. Knauff, author<strong>of</strong> Tra<strong>in</strong><strong>in</strong>g for the Useful <strong>and</strong> the Beautiful,a history <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Philadelphia</strong> School <strong>of</strong><strong>Design</strong> for Women published <strong>in</strong> 1922.Follow<strong>in</strong>g graduation, Leonhardt set <strong>of</strong>falone for Engl<strong>and</strong> aboard a Cunard L<strong>in</strong>evessel for what was to be an adventure thatwould change her life. Her sketchbooks<strong>in</strong>dicate long hours spent creat<strong>in</strong>gmeticulous color studies <strong>of</strong> museumartworks <strong>and</strong> artifacts. The sketchbooks<strong>and</strong> journals also <strong>in</strong>clude draw<strong>in</strong>gs <strong>of</strong>l<strong>and</strong>marks from her fellowship travel <strong>in</strong>Engl<strong>and</strong> <strong>and</strong> then <strong>in</strong> France, tickets,photographs, architectural design motifs,as well as letters <strong>of</strong> recommendation fromcurators help<strong>in</strong>g her to ga<strong>in</strong> access toother collections. The sketches <strong>and</strong> studiesbecame the <strong>in</strong>spiration for future work.Through the fellowship she ga<strong>in</strong>ed alife-long love <strong>of</strong> research <strong>and</strong> travel; therewere subsequent trips to Europe, NorthAmerican <strong>and</strong> Panama.Textile design by Edna Leonhardt, watercolor guashe, c. 1950.Leonhardt also discovered a passion fortapestry, which became her specialty.Dur<strong>in</strong>g her career, Edna AckerLeonhardt had a wide-rang<strong>in</strong>g impact onmanufactur<strong>in</strong>g. A “K<strong>in</strong>g Tut” <strong>in</strong>spiredtapestry she designed is credited withsav<strong>in</strong>g a struggl<strong>in</strong>g <strong>Philadelphia</strong> textilemill. The design was reported to be sopopular that the mill had to hire 300additional employees to keep up withproduction. Leonhardt, who later taughtat the School, was the first woman todesign fabric for automobile <strong>in</strong>teriors.In 1927 she became the only woman <strong>in</strong>North America to own her own textiledesign firm.Like Leonhardt,SarahWray is atextile designer. Wray won the SarahPeter Travel Fellowship last year as a junior.Eight decades separate Leonhardt <strong>and</strong>Wray’s fellowship experience, but the twowomen share an adventurous spirit, acuteobservation <strong>and</strong> curiosity.Today, sophomores <strong>and</strong> juniors <strong>in</strong> goodacademic st<strong>and</strong><strong>in</strong>g may compete for thesefellowships. The process is rigorous; theymust research, write <strong>and</strong> present a proposal,<strong>and</strong> participate <strong>in</strong> a fellowship exhibition<strong>in</strong> the spr<strong>in</strong>g.Wray’s fellowship proposal was to travelto the West coast visit<strong>in</strong>g San Francisco,Sonoma Valley, Shasta Lake, Yosemite, BigSur, Los Angeles <strong>and</strong> San Diego. “I wantedto see a part <strong>of</strong> the country I had never seenbefore, to take photographs <strong>and</strong> keep ajournal,” says Wray. “I also wanted to testmyself, to get out on my own, camp out<strong>and</strong> test my plann<strong>in</strong>g <strong>and</strong> travel skills.”Wray decided to travel with her <strong>Moore</strong>roommate Nicole Pel<strong>in</strong>o. Plann<strong>in</strong>g thefourteen-day trip was almost as much <strong>of</strong>an experience as travel<strong>in</strong>g itself. Wray<strong>and</strong> Pel<strong>in</strong>o, had never camped before.Says Wray, “Prepar<strong>in</strong>g for the trip <strong>in</strong>volvedregister<strong>in</strong>g at campgrounds, research<strong>in</strong>gAbove, pen <strong>and</strong> guashe study <strong>of</strong> Persian Portiere,collection <strong>of</strong> theVictoria <strong>and</strong> Albert Museum, London,from Edna Leonhardt's sketchbook kept dur<strong>in</strong>g herEuropean Fellowship <strong>in</strong> 1923.Leonhardt's sketch <strong>of</strong>Tower Bridge, London, 1923.Leonhardt images from <strong>Moore</strong>'s Archives.Opposite page, background, pages from SarahWray'sfellowship travel journal, 2008.4

Says Wray, “Hav<strong>in</strong>g the freedomto explore rural <strong>and</strong> urban l<strong>and</strong>scapes was<strong>in</strong>credible. The weather was a big surprise;some nights got below 30 degrees. I madea few mistakes. Cutt<strong>in</strong>g across California isnot an easy task <strong>and</strong> I booked a hotel <strong>in</strong> abad neighborhood <strong>in</strong> San Francisco. Therewere many great moments too with notime limits on my explorations. I tookmany photographs; I wanted to documenteveryth<strong>in</strong>g for future reference.”“San Francisco <strong>in</strong>spired me because <strong>of</strong>its diversity; the colors <strong>and</strong> urban graffiti,”says Wray. “I loved the contrast <strong>of</strong> the bayto Haight <strong>and</strong> the Mission. One <strong>of</strong> myfavorite moments was at Shasta Lake, wehiked the mounta<strong>in</strong>ous areas <strong>of</strong> the lake.

As I had hoped,this trip enhanced my view <strong>of</strong> where I live<strong>and</strong> my color pallette.”After the fellowship, Wray felt betterprepared to face her next adventure, an<strong>in</strong>ternship with Target <strong>in</strong> M<strong>in</strong>neapolis.Required <strong>in</strong>ternships are part <strong>of</strong> <strong>Moore</strong>’scommitment to educate women for careers<strong>in</strong> art <strong>and</strong> design. Students complete the240-hour <strong>in</strong>ternship the summer aftertheir junior year.Wray returned to <strong>Moore</strong> for her senioryear with a job <strong>of</strong>fer from Target. Follow<strong>in</strong>ggraduation, Wray will go to work as anassistant designer.Wray’s life-chang<strong>in</strong>g fellowship maylead to chang<strong>in</strong>g the lives <strong>of</strong> others. Shesays, “I’m now try<strong>in</strong>g to raise enoughmoney to spend June <strong>in</strong> Kisumu Kenya,to work with a school <strong>and</strong> orphanage. Inever could have realistically planned for atrip <strong>of</strong> this k<strong>in</strong>d, if I hadn’t seen the success(<strong>and</strong> failures) the fellowship afforded me.”Read more about Wray’s fellowshipwww.SarahWray<strong>Design</strong>.blogspot.com.5

It is about the genetic under part <strong>of</strong> nature ––the frailty, fragility <strong>and</strong> magic <strong>and</strong> energy that all life has.”In 1990, Hyder made a connection with a curator from SouthAmerica that lead to a three <strong>and</strong> a half month visit to Venezuela with hisfamily. “By then,” says Hyder, “my imagery had already begun to<strong>in</strong>terpret jungles, <strong>and</strong> I found a place I loved.” In 2000, a Fulbrightallowed him to return to Venezuela to study, work <strong>and</strong> live.
