Marilyn J. Stokstad Spencer Museum of Art Student Award
The Stokstad Student Awards honor undergraduate and graduate students who make major contributions to advancing the mission of the Museum. Recipients are nominated and selected annually by Spencer staff.
Dr. Marilyn Stokstad served as director of the Spencer from 1961 to 1968 and remained a longtime friend and advocate of the Museum throughout her life. As director, she created pioneering publications and exhibitions that shaped future directions of the Museum and acquired many works of art that remain hallmarks of the Spencer’s collection.
