BYU Museum of Art curator receives national award for Weir book

Marian Wardle, curator of American Art for the Brigham Young University Museum of Art, has received the W.E. Fischelis Award from the Victorian Society in America for her work as editor and co-author of the book, "The Weir Family, 1820-1920: Expanding the Traditions of American Art."

The book accompanied the recently closed BYU show of the same title.

The award came as a surprise to Wardle, who knew nothing about her nomination for the award.
