The Nasher Sculpture Center, an Arts District neighbor of the AT&T Performing Arts Center, today announced the creation of the Nasher Prize, a new “annual international award that will be presented to a living artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture.”
An international jury of renowned museum directors, curators, artists and historians will convene in July at Tate Britain in London to select the laureate, who will be announced this fall and receive $100,000.
The Nasher was packed for the announcement, which included Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, who praised the Nasher Prize and what it would do for the city. Also on hand was Nancy Nasher, daughter of the Nasher Collection’s late founders Ray and Patsy Nasher. Ms. Nasher is also a former Board member of the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
