President Tony Jones Honored by Osaka University (535 words)
In recognition for his many years of accomplishments in international exchanges through the arts, Tony Jones, president of The School of the Art Institute, has been named as Honorary Director of the Board of Directors at Japan-s Osaka University of Arts.
The exchange program between SAIC and OUA is a great opportunity for the two cultures and schools to merge; however, Jones said it is often harder to find American students who want to go study in Japan.
Among his other accolades and awards are: Scotland's Newbery Medal (1986); Honorary Professor, The University of Wales (1995); Director of the Glasgow School of Arts (1980-1986); Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art and Honorary Member of the American Institute of Architects.
