Michael Hartman was awarded the Frank L. Horton Fellowship to attend the 43rd Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) Summer Institute in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Offered in collaboration with the University of Virginia, this year's interdisciplinary seminar examined cultural intersections between Native American, African and European-descended artists, craftspeople and consumers in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Cotton South. Throughout the program, Hartman participated in lectures, discussions, hands-on workshops and object studies. He also traveled to East Tennessee, Georgia Piedmont and Upcountry South Carolina for a field study. MESDA's 2019 Summer Institute culminated with a student research symposium where Hartman presented his paper "Painting Sovereignty and Exhibiting Politics in Charles Bird King's Portrait of Mistippee."
