Congratulations Patrick Strzelec!

2020 Outstanding Educator Award Recipient

The 2020 Outstanding Educator Award recipient is Patrick Strzelec, of Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ).

The ISCís Board of Trustees established the Educator Award to recognize individual artist-educators who have excelled at teaching sculpture in institutions of higher learning. An exemplary career combining personal studio practice and measurable academic performance form the evaluative basis of this award.

A successful candidate should be currently teaching with 20+ years of teaching at an institution of higher learning, have a considerable body of work and should be knowledgeable in the history, theories & innovations that compose the subject of sculpture. This knowledge along with visible personal research and an informed technical vocabulary will have resulted in teaching effectiveness. The ability to articulate this knowledge in the identification and promotion of each studentís creative potential defines the spirit of the ISC Educator Award.
