Randy Contributor Nicole Eisenman is one of the highly-regarded awardees of the 2015 MacArthur Fellowship. A painter, Eisenman was awarded the grant for "expanding the critical and expressive capacity of the Western figurative tradition through works that engage contemporary social issues and phenomena." She is one of 24 "geniuses" selected to receive $625,000 over the next 5 years to support her work.
