JCU Alumna Mari Yoko Hara Wins Prestigious Rome Prize in Art History

Mari Yoko Hara, a John Cabot University Art History graduate and now a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Virginia, has won the two-year pre-doctoral Rome Prize in Art History at the American Academy in Rome for 2012-2014. Yoko, who graduated from JCU in 2001, will be in Rome for two years working on her dissertation.

The Rome Prize is one of the most prestigious prizes in the humanities in the United States, and Yoko richly deserves it. Check out her dissertation project, which is on Baldassarre Peruzzi, architect of the Villa Farnesina, the splendid Renaissance building right next door to JCU.

Congratulations to Yoko from the entire John Cabot University community!
