Congratulations to Atalanta Siegel, who has been selected by Franklin College to receive the Jane Mulkey and Rufus King Green Graduate Fellowship in Arts and Humanities for 2019-20. Ms. Siegel, a second-year Acting MFA student, will use the $4000 award to pursue further training and certification in Intimacy Direction. This newly developed pedagogy trains specialists to stage scenes requiring physical and emotional intimacy while helping actors navigate the psychological and interpersonal challenges that such scenes present.
