Something incredible has happened that will support my work in an untold multitude of ways – I have been awarded The Hudgens Prize.
This prize is a gift made by anonymous donors and bequeathed by the Hudgens Center for the Arts. It is one of the largest art awards in the US, a cash prize of $50,000 awarded to an individual artist.
I am so honored to have been selected from the formidable finalists by the extraordinary jury of curators:
Doryun Chong, Museum of Modern Art/NY and newly appointed as Chief Curator of M+Hong Kong’s new art museum opening in 2017
Toby Kamps, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Menil Collection
Heather Pesanti, Senior Curator of The Contemporary Austin
