USF St. Petersburg professor wins Rome Prize

USF professor will do research in Rome

Sheramy D. Bundrick, an associate professor of art history at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, has won the prestigious Rome Prize. The prize is awarded annually by the American Academy in Rome, and comes with a fellowship that will allow Bundrick to pursue advanced research in the ancient city. Bundrick said she will be studying "the reception of ancient Athenian vases and their images among the Etruscans and how these artifacts were integrated into Etruscan material culture during the 6th and 5th centuries B.C." Bundrick has been on the faculty since 2001.
