Alum Nancy Rubins receives the 2021 Artist Award
The Artists’ Legacy Foundation has awarded Nancy Rubins (M.F.A., ‘76) the 2021 Artist Award. Rubins’ dynamic and monumental sculptures of salvaged materials explore the ambiguity between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality. Her work can be found in numerous public collections including Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; Austrian Sculpture Park, Graz, Austria; City of Paris, France; Eli Broad Foundation, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, among others. In 1993, Rubins was invited to participate in the Venice Biennale and the Whitney Biennial in the same year. She has received the 2013 Distinguished Women in Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA and the 2003 Academy Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
The Artist Award is given to a visual artist whose primary medium is painting or sculpture in recognition of their professional achievements.
