Retired KU professor to receive award

May 18, 2006


Roger Shimomura, a Kansas University distinguished professor emeritus of art, will be honored today at the Celebration of Distinction Annual Award Dinner at the University of Washington, Seattle, as one of four recipients of the Distinguished Alumnus Award.

This award, first bestowed in 1938, is the highest honor the University of Washington bestows upon any graduate, and it honors former students in the College of Arts & Sciences whose achievements have earned them national or international prominence.

Shimomura, who retired from teaching in 2003, continues to lecture at art schools and museums, and to exhibit his work.
