2008 OUTSTANDING STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
IN CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE AWARD

BACKGROUND

The ISC established the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award program in 1994 to recognize deserving sculpture students and to encourage their continued commitment to the field of sculpture.

The jurors for the 2008 award include Mary Ceruti, Director The Sculpture Center, Long Island, New York; Robert Roesch, Chair of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Art, Philadelphia, PA; and Dennis Oppenheim, sculptor, New York.

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 11, 2008 to April 26, 2009. 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.
