Hannah Warner (BFA 2022, studio art) had her work, Lucid Beacon, accepted for a 2023 Black Rock City Honoraria art grant for the international Burning Man event August 27-September 4, 2023. Out of almost 400 projects invited to submit proposals, Warner’s was one of only 75 artworks selected for the award (one of 16 that “play with fire”) and the first-ever winner from Alabama. She posts regular updates about her project on Instagram @lucidbeacon. Warner, whose concentration in the BFA studio art degree was in digital media and sculpture, spent the fall following her graduation at the NES Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland.
