NEW YORK – Rhode Island School of Design President John Maeda will be honored with the “STEM to STEAM” award by the Tribeca Film Festival later this month.

As part of the fourth annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards, Maeda will be honored for spearheading RISD’s movement to add art and design to the national education and research agenda.

According to a Tribeca release, RISD’s initiative “fosters the true innovation that comes with combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer.”

“RISD offers endless examples of how art and design education teaches the flexible thinking, risk-taking and creative problem solving needed to solve today’s most complex and pressing challenges,” said the Tribeca release.

Maeda is one among many to be honored at the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards on April 26. The event is hosted by the New York University Stern School of Business.
