SAIC F.H. Sellers professorship IN PAINTING

Professor Candida Alvarez (Painting and Drawing) was awarded the School's F.H. Sellers Professorship in Painting by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Endowed in 1939, the professorship has previously been held by Susanna Coffey and Ray Yoshida (BFA 1953).

Mary Morely Sellers established the F.H. Sellers Professorship in Painting at SAIC in 1939 in honor of her late husband.


One of the celebratory privileges of tenured faculty at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is a sabbatical, or salaried leave-of absence. In 2019, SAIC awarded Candida Alvarez a Sabbatical for the 2019 Fall and 2020 Spring terms.
