The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2007 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award. This year’s program attracted hundreds of nominees from university sculpture programs in North America and abroad. From a pool of 339 nominees from 139 schools, the jury selected 21 winners and 12 honorable mentions. Jurors for the program were Alyson Baker, executive director of Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, New York; Tom Csaszar, artist and writer; and Steven Siegel, sculptor.
This annual award was founded in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and to encourage their continued commitment to the field of sculpture, as well as to recognize the award winners’ faculty sponsors and their institutions. The 21 award recipients will participate in Grounds for Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition, in Hamilton, New Jersey, from October 6, 2007 through April 27, 2008.
