The United States Society for Education Through Art has awarded UO Senior Vice Provost Doug Blandy its National Ziegfeld Award for his research in arts education. The annual award honors one American and one international art educator who have made an outstanding and internationally recognized contribution to art education through exceptional records of scholarly writing, research, professional service, or community service. Blandy is recognized both nationally and internationally as one of art education’s most influential and respected scholars. His research highlights democratic approaches to education, particularly relating to issues of social justice and non-mainstream and underserved learners, while also focusing on broader issues related to cultural identity and material culture.
