Fellow Awards

2021 CHM Fellow Awards Honoring Lillian F. Schwartz

Lillian Schwartz created a remarkable series of films that brought the new technology of computer animation into the artworld in the 1970s. Her work expanded the scope of media art, and spurred fresh developments in technology. Through a decades-long residency at Bell Labs, and collaborations at IBM and the MIT Media Lab, Schwartz continued to explore the possibilities of the computer for artistic exploration.

On December 9, 2021, Lillian was honored by CHM for her pioneering work at the intersection of art and computing. Here, you’ll find all footage from “Breaking Boundaries: Celebrating Creativity with Computer Art Pioneer Lillian F. Schwartz,” video extras, and related content.
