Cami is the recipient of the Lee Krasner-Jackson Pollock Foundation grant for painting, the Argosy Foundation and Puffin Foundation grants for painting (in collaboration with composer Sam Guarnaccia, a UVM Sustainability Fellow), and the Lattie Coor award recipient for Strengthening the Environment in the Humanities at the University of Vermont. Her paintings, installations, and community art projects have followed the climate-change movement for the last decade.
