Mason Korea Professor Edgar Endress Receives Grant from US Mission in Tunisia

Mason Korea Professor Edgar Endress recently received a grant from the US Mission in Tunisia’s Public Diplomacy Grant Program. Professor Endress is a George Mason professor of art who teaches digital art courses for the Computer Game Design program at Mason Korea. 

The grant aims to support the Art and Social Engagement Project (“The Raft of Medusa”), a Spring 2023 US-Tunisian cultural exchange based in Sousse, Tunisia. The Project builds on a similar pilot program of instruction and exhibition in Sousse led by Professor Edgar Endress.

One of the project's main objectives is to consolidate the bridge between George Mason University School of Art and the Academy of Fine Arts and cultural institutions in Sousse.

“The project facilitates cultural exchange, advising, and creating a pedagogical platform for mentorship and dialogue between students from the US and Tunisia,” said Professor Edgar Endress. “Specifically, we propose developing a forum with students and the art community through a public art project that will address social issues,” he added.

Below are some of Professor Endress’ recent works that have been on display around the globe throughout the summer.
