The International Sculpture Center presents the winners of the 2016 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards. From a pool of 326 nominees from 148 schools, the jury selected 16 award recipients and 23 honorable mentions. Jurors were Monika Burczyk, Acting Director/President of the Board at Post Contemporary, Troy, NY; Paul Hubbard, Professor of MFA studio art and fine arts at Moore College of Art & Design, Philadelphia, PA; and Emily Nelms Perez, Sculptor, Princeton, NJ. The 16 award recipients will participate in Grounds For Sculpture's Fall/Winter Exhibition, in Hamilton, New Jersey, from October 23, 2016-April 2, 2017 and the exhibition will travel to a location, to be determined, during summer 2017. Check back for updates.



The ISC established the Sculpture Residency in Switzerland in cooperation with sculptor Heinz Aeschlimann. This program provides an opportunity for 1-2 Award recipients to work side-by-side with world-renowned sculptor Heinz Aeschlimann, and his wife Gertrud, an art advocate, collector and art patron, in an amazing inter-cultural experience.
