Michael Jones McKean is the recipient of the 2017 Harker Award for Interdisciplinary Studies. McKean, an associate professor in Sculpture + Extended Media, is in residence at the San Francisco Art Institute preparing for a large solo project in January. Administered by the San Francisco Foundation, the Harker Award supports artists-in-residence at the San Francisco Arts Institute and is granted to only one artist per year. At $100,000, it is one of the single largest grants given to an individual artist in the country.
