JEFFREY RUBINOFF SCHOLARSHIP IN ART AS A SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE
In 2016, sculptor Jeffrey Rubinoff established an endowment in the University of Victoria's Art History and Visual Studies department for a recurring four-year PhD fellowship in the field of Art as a Source of Knowledge.
The awardees, who will be known as "Rubinoff Scholars in Art as a Source of Knowledge," are selected for the excellence of their research in an area of modern and contemporary art history with a focus on the visual arts.
"My own sculptural work is completely dedicated to art history," says Rubinoff. "Original ideas grow out of original work, which led me to see art as a source of knowledge. Since these insights form the context within which the work becomes meaningful, it is imperative that the general public, artists and art educators understand them if the work is to be fully appreciated."
