“There is no greater testament of your exemplary contributions to the field of visual arts education than being chosen for this prestigious award,” said Mario R. Rossero, NAEA executive director.

Crabbe’s 2022 dissertation, “Intergenerational Counternarratives of Creative Agency: Reimagining Inclusive Practices Through Youth Participatory Action Research,” analyzed the effectiveness of programs aimed at increasing youth participation in the arts.

Associate Professor Amelia (Amy) Kraehe was Crabbe’s dissertation adviser.

“I wanted to share this exciting news and to thank each of you for supporting me. I appreciate you and your time,” Crabbe told Kraehe and fellow AVCE faculty members at the School of Art: gloria j. wilsonCarissa DiCindio and Ryan Shin.

Crabbe is a lecturer and director of the BFAAE Program at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and assistant editor of the Art Education journal.

Her research interests grew from her teaching practice within youth programs in art museums.

Crabbe received her M.A. in Art History in 2011 from the University of East Anglia (United Kingdom) and B.A. in Art History in 2008 from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, where she also was a Division III national champion diver in 1- and 3-meter springboard.

“Your colleagues throughout the United States and abroad join the NAEA Board of Directors in applauding your leadership, commitment and service to the profession,” Rossero told Crabbe.

Elliot Eisner, who died in 2014, was a professor of Art and Education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education.
