ISC Press Release: (Hamilton, NJ) Devin Balara of Bloomington, IN has been awarded the prestigious International Sculpture Center’s Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2014.

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 an exceptional number of participating institutions; including over 151 universities, colleges and art school sculpture programs from six countries for a nominated total of 374 students.

A distinguished panel made up of Kathryn Mikesell, Founder of the Fountainhead Residency and Studios, Miami, FL; Stefano Catalani, Director of Art, Craft & Design at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, WA; and Donald Lipski, Sculptor, NY selected 22 recipients and 25 honorable mentions through a competitive viewing process of the works submitted. The selection of the recipients from a large pool of applicants, including international students, is a great accomplishment and testament to the artistic promise of the students’ work.

The 22 award recipients will participate in the Grounds For Sculpture’s Fall/Winter Exhibition, which will be on view from October 2014 – March 2015 in Hamilton, New Jersey, adjacent to the ISC headquarters. The artist’s work will be featured in the October 2014 issue of the International Sculpture Center’s award winning publication, Sculpture magazine as well as on the ISC’s award-winning website at www.sculpture.org.
