Jennifer Jolly, Associate Professor in the the Department of Art History, has received an NEH Research Fellowship for her project "Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas's Legacy as a Nation Builder through His Art Patronage in Michoacan’s Lake District." The research is part of Professor Jolly's book-in-progress Creating Pátzcuaro, Creating Mexico, which examines Lázaro Cardenas’ extensive patronage in and around Pátzcuaro and pairs it with a history of images of this region in considering how the area figures historically in the post-revolutionary re-imagining of Mexico.
