Daniel Bruce, MFA 2008 Receives International Sculpture Center Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Hamilton, New Jersey Daniel Bruce of Elkins Park, PA has been awarded the prestigious International Sculpture Center’s Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2008. Daniel is a MFA student of the Tyler School of Art Sculpture Program. The International Sculpture Center (ISC) established the annual “Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award” program in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and to encourage their continued commitment to the field.
It was also designed to draw attention to the sculpture programs of the participating universities, colleges and art schools. The award program’s growing publicity resulted in a record number of participating institutions; including over 160 colleges and art school sculpture programs from six countries for a nominated total of 401 students. A distinguished panel made up of Mary Ceruti, Director of The Sculpture Center; Robert Roesch, Chair of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts; and Dennis Oppenheim, sculptor, selected twelve winners and nine honorable mentions through a competitive viewing process of the works submitted. The selection of the winners from a large pool of applicants, including international students, is a great accomplishment and testament to the artistic promise of the students’ work. The twelve award recipients will participate in the Grounds For Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition, which will be on view from October 11, 2008-April 26, 2009 in Hamilton, New Jersey, adjacent to the ISC headquarters.
The artist’s work will be included in Grounds For Sculpture’s 2008 Fall/Winter Exhibitions Catalogue and featured in the October 2008 issue of the International Sculpture Center’s award winning publication, Sculpture magazine as well as on the ISC award winning website at: www.sculpture.org.
