Maryland Institute College of Art, in Batimore, has established the Tylden Westcott Streett Scholarship for Figurative Art, created through a gift from alumnus and longtime interdisciplinary sculpture professor Tylden Westcott Streett. The endowment begins with $25,000, and an additional $175,000 will be added through a bequest. The scholarship will be open to MICA undergraduates, working in any medium, whose work explores the human figure. Scholarships will be awarded based on financial need and merit, and recipients will be chosen among candidates entered in MICA’s juried annual Student Scholarship Competition. Streett returned to MICA in 1959, two years after graduating, as a teacher of figurative sculpture. He served as director of the Rinehart School of Sculpture from 1959 to 1960 and as director of graduate programs from 1965 to 1971. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, a distinguished-service award given to long-serving and respected faculty members, during MICA’s spring 2009 commencement. A permanent teaching studio has been named in his honor in Mount Royal Station. Streett has exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., the Baltimore Museum of Art and the National Sculpture Society in New York City. He has received a Ford Foundation Grant, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and a grant in figure studies from the Union of Independent Colleges of Art.
