Estes receives travel fellowship
Cotton Estes, of Jamestown, was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship from Bowdoin College. The fellowship will allow Estes the opportunity to travel to Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Germany, the United Kingdom and Turkey for a project she is calling "Only That Endures Which Changes: Adaptive Reuse of Industrial Sites."
Estes, a Latin America studies and visual arts major, said the Watson fellowship will give her the chance to address a long-standing, personal inquiry about the social role of architecture. She hopes to examine how recent social changes have granted a new lease on life to abandoned mills and factories across Europe.
Estes is the daughter of Jim and Darcy Estes of Jamestown.
