Two FSU Faculty Members Among Maryland State Arts Council Award Recipients

Two FSU Faculty Members Among Maryland State Arts Council Award Recipients
Robert Hein and Dr. Gregory Latta
Two Frostburg State University faculty members, Dr. Gregory Latta of the Department of Physics and Engineering and Robert Hein of the Department of Art and Design, have received the Maryland State Arts Council’s Individual Artist Award, which recognizes artists who have made a unique contribution to the culture of the state.

Originally from Indianapolis, Hein has been a professor of photography at FSU since 2007. After receiving his Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Cincinnati, he has been keeping an ongoing series of national and international exhibit entries as well as solo shows. Before coming to FSU, Hein taught at Ball State University. The topics of Hein’s work range from introspective expressions of dreams or memories to outward-looking imagery ranging from urban skyline views to children at play. Hein received his Individual Artist Award in photography for his creative endeavor and visual research it took to finish the editing and processing of the final photographs of his beautiful collection.

Latta is not only a physics professor but a singer, songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist specializing in instruments such as the hammered dulcimer, banjo, guitar and concertina, as well as many others. He also performs a very eclectic mix of music ranging from contemporary folk to Irish to Broadway. Latta received the Individual Artist Award for a Non-Classical Music Solo Performance. His recording for this award features traditional Irish music, traditional American music, contemporary American music, traditional Appalachian music and traditional country music.
