2007 OUTSTANDING STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
IN CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE AWARD

BACKGROUND

The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2007 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award. This year's award program attracted a record number of nominees. From a pool of 339 nominees from over 140 schools, the jury comprised of Allyson Baker, Executive Director of Socrates Sculpture Park Long Island City, New York; Tom Csaszar, an artist and writer from Philadelphia, PA; and Steven Siegel, a sculptor from New York, selected 21 winners and 12 honorable mentions.

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 kind support from Grounds For Sculpture.

The International Sculpture Center will honor this year’s winners at its annual awards presentation and private reception showcasing their sculpture works at the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. The show will run from October 6, 2007 to April 27, 2008. Winners will receive a biographical profile and photograph of their work featured in Sculpture magazine; a chance to win a Residency in Switzerland to study with distinguished sculptor Heinz Aeschlimann; inclusion of their award-winning sculpture works in a color Fall/Winter exhibition catalogue sponsored by the Grounds for Sculpture; and a free one year membership at the ISC.
