2003 OUTSTANDING STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
IN CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE AWARD

BACKGROUND

The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2003 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award. This year’s award program attracted a record number of nominees, 342 from 109 college and university sculpture programs in North America and abroad. The jury comprised of David Collens, Director of Storm King Art Center, Tom Otterness, sculptor, and Susan Taylor, Director of the Princeton Art Museum selected 15 winners and 3 honorable mentions. 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 15 award recipients will participate in Grounds For Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition, in Hamilton, New Jersey, from October 11, 2003 through April 18, 2004.

The ISC would like to thank those who have participated in this year's program and those who have supported us this year though generous donations. The success of this program would not be possible without the in-kind support from Grounds For Sculpture and in part by a grant from the I.A. O'Shaughnessy Foundation.
