Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards
The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2017 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 354 nominees from 137 schools, the jury selected 15 award recipients
and 16 honorable mentions. Jurors for the program were Edith Newhall, art critic for the
Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Doug Schatz, Professor of Sculpture
at the State University of New York, Potsdam, New York; and Gary Garrido Schneider,
Executive Director, Grounds For Sculpture, Hamilton, 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 15 award recipients will participate in an exhibition at Belger Crane
Yards Studio in Kansas City, which opens October 2017; the show will then travel to
an additional location, to be determined, during winter 2017. Two of this year's winners,
Shawn Creeden and Nooshin Hakim Javadi, have also been awarded a six-week residency at
Grounds For Sculpture.
