Guggenheim Foundation Fellowships


Larry Polansky

Susan Jane Walp

Larry Polansky, Associate Professor of Music, and Susan Jane Walp, Lecturer in Studio Art, were named John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellows for 2004.

The fellowships reward notable professional achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment. Polansky is a composer of music for a wide variety of acoustic and electro-acoustic instruments and ensembles, as well as an accomplished guitarist and writer. Among his many honors are the BMI Young Composers Award (1980), First Prize in the Young Composers of the Western States Competition (1983) and the Sony Music Fellowship (2001). He has also been a Fulbright Senior Scholar/Teacher and coauthored the computer music language HMSL (Hierarchical Music Specification Language). Polansky has produced numerous records and CDs, including Lonesome Road (The Crawford Variations) and Four Voice Canons #2–18.

The Guggenheim Foundation hopes that Walp will use her fellowship to continue to create intimate still life paintings and to branch out to pursue figure compositions. Her work has been exhibited by the Tibor de Nagy and Fischbach galleries in New York, the Hackett Freedman Gallery in San Francisco and the ISA Gallery in Montecastello di Vibio, Italy. She has won numerous awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
