Sylvia Ardyn Boone Prize
The Sylvia Ardyn Boone Prize is awarded for the best written work by a graduate student on African or African-American art. The Boone prize is jointly administered by the Departments of African American Studies and History of Art.
Vera Wells, Yale ’71, established the award to honor the memory of Sylvia Boone, a noted scholar of African art, who was the first tenured African-American woman on the Yale faculty.
