2013 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards

The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2013 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards. This year’s program attracted a large number of nominees from university sculpture programs in North America and abroad. From a pool of 414 nominees from 159 schools, the jury selected 12 award recipients and 5 honorable mentions. Jurors for the program were Drew Goerlitz, sculptor and associate professor of sculpture at SUNY Plattsburgh; Elizabeth Neilson, director, Zabludowicz Collection, London; and Rein Triefeldt, sculptor, New Jersey. This annual award was founded in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and encourage their continued commitment to the field of sculpture, as well as to recognize the award recipients’ faculty sponsors and their institutions. The 12 award recipients will participate in Grounds For Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition, in Hamilton, New Jersey, from October 5, 2013 through March 30, 2014, and the exhibition will travel to a location, to be determined, during summer 2014… see the entire review in the print version of October’s Sculpture magazine.
