25 earn the 'genius' title

By Marissa Newhall, USA TODAY

Teresita Fernandez was home taking care of her children last Tuesday when she learned she had won $500,000. "I was very surprised," she said. "They did such a good job of keeping it under wraps."

Fernandez, 37, a sculptor in New York City, is one of 25 recipients of this year's MacArthur Foundation Fellows Program "genius grants," annual prizes that recognize exceptional creative, scientific and intellectual minds. Fernandez and 24 others were chosen from more than 100 nominees.

Fernandez, who creates large-scale experiential pieces with various materials, said the grant was "an honor." She said she plans to put the money toward making her already brewing projects more ambitious.

"I'll continue on the path I'm on in terms of how I meander my way through ideas I've been working on for years," Fernandez said.
