I am very happy to announce that I have been awarded the International Sculpture Center's Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2015.
The International Sculpture Center (ISC) established the annual "Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award" program in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and to encourage their continued commitment to the field. It was also designed to draw attention to the sculpture programs of the participating universities, colleges and art schools.
A distinguished panel made up of Chakaia Booker, Sculptor, NY; Kelly Kivland, Assistant Curator at Dia Art Foundation, NY; and Maki Hajikano, Associate Professor of Fine Arts at York College at CUNY, NY; selected 18 recipients and 7 honorable mentions through a competitive viewing process of the works submitted.
The 18 award recipients will participate in the Grounds For Sculpture's Fall/Winter Exhibition, which will be on view from October 2015 – March 2016 in Hamilton, New Jersey, adjacent to the ISC headquarters. The artist's work will be featured in the October 2015 issue of the International Sculpture Center's award winning publication, Sculpture magazine as well as on the ISC’s award-winning website at www.sculpture.org.
