Each year Harvard’s Graduate School of Design awards Loeb Fellowships to professionals who shape the built environment—architects, urban planners, artists, policymakers, and others. The fellows spend a year on research and dialogue focused on how their work might advance equitable social futures.
This year’s cohort includes two Bryn Mawr alumnae—Elizabeth Kay Miller ’89 and Michelle Joan Wilkinson ’93.
Miller served on the Philadelphia City Planning Commission from 2011 to 2016 and the Design Advocacy Group from 2005 to 2011. A Growth and Structure of Cities major, she holds a master’s in government administration from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels School of Government.
Formerly director of collections and exhibitions at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, she has also worked at the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Studio Museum in Harlem. As a 2012 Center for Curatorial Leadership Fellow, Wilkinson completed a short-term residency at the Design Museum in London. A comparative literature major and Africana Studies minor, she holds a Ph.D. from Emory University.
