Katie Coughlin, who is a 2018 MFA grad, is a recipient of the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award.
"The International Sculpture Center is proud to present the winners of the 2018 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards. This year's program attracted a large number of nominees from university sculpture programs in North America and abroad. Sam Ekwurtzel, Brooklyn based artist & 2006 Student Award Recipient, Brooklyn, NY; Gina Miccinilli, Educator & working sculptor, Mahwah, NJ; and Ysabel Pinyol, Curatorial Director, Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, NJ juried this year's winners. From a pool of 354 nominees from 138 schools, they selected 17 award recipients and 18 honorable mentions. This annual award was founded in 1994 to recognize young sculptors and encourage their continued commitment to the field of sculpture, as well as to recognize the award recipients' faculty sponsors and their institutions. Two students will be awarded a 4 week residency at Grounds For Sculpture. The 17 award recipients will participate in an Exhibition (location and dates TBD). Check back for updates."
