One of only 12 works to be selected worldwide, amongst thousands of submittals and a record number of institutions who submitted works, Mindy Solomon Gallery artist Christopher Torrez was awarded the International Sculpture Center’s 2012 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award.
The International Sculpture Center (ISC) established the annual award program in 1994 to recognize and encourage young sculptors in their continued commitment to the field. The distinguished jurors included Donna Dennis, Winifred Lutz and Joseph Becherer.
