Cesar Cornejo, associate professor of sculpture and extended media, is a recipient of a Howard Foundation fellowship in sculpture.

Cornejo is one of four artists to receive a Howard Fellowship in sculpture for the 2018-2019 academic year. The fellowship gives Cornejo funding to spend time working on his proposed project, Somber Monuments, at the time of his choosing.

The Howard Foundation offers fellowships in a five-year sequence of academic fields. Fields for the 2018-2019 academic year include Sculpture as well as History of Art and Architecture.

Cornejo's work explores the relationship between art, architecture and society. His work is informed by having lived and worked internationally in four countries—Peru, England, Japan, and the United States. He works in several media including sculpture, installation, drawing and photography.
