NYIT Professor Elected as First Architect President of MacDowell Colony
Jason Van Nest

Congratulations to Jason Van Nest, assistant professor of architecture, who was elected on April 11 as president of the MacDowell Colony's Fellows Executive Committee. The MacDowell Colony is the leading artist colony in the United States. He is the first licensed architect to serve in this position.

Van Nest's connection to the MacDowell Colony began in fall 2008, when he was awarded an architectural research fellowship to write software for architects to use in parametric design. Since then, he's made significant presentations to the MacDowell board of directors and has served as committee secretary. He says his new position will help him to "make even more positive contributions to the fellowships afforded to architects and the larger community of creative artists."
