Terrance Hayes Selected To Be MacArthur Fellow

One-person Show at the Melega in 2013

In 2013 Terrance Hayes had a one-person show at the Melega Art Museum titled “Render.” We could not have been more pleased when it was announced that Terrace is the recipient of one the world’s most prestigious honors, a MacArthur Fellowship. The fellowship comes with a stipend of $625,000. When Terrance was notified of what is commonly referred to as “the Genius Grant” he was told that of course they knew of his many accomplishments in the world of poetry, but that they also knew he was a painter. No doubt the MacArthur committee was aware of Terrance’s show at the only art museum in Fayette County, the Frank L. Melega Art Museum. This March, a feature article about Mr. Hayes was in the New York Times Sunday Magazine. Melega Art Museum Director Patrick Daugherty was interviewed by Stephen Burt for the piece to learn more about Terrance Hayes the painter.
