Last chance to see Celebrating the Lucelia Artist Award, 2001-2006 before it closes June 22nd. Installed at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the exhibition features works by each of the previous winners: Matthew Coolidge, Andrea Zittel (Art:21 Season 1), Kara Walker (Season 2), Rirkrit Tiravanija, Liz Larner, and Jorge Pardo.

Chosen by a distinguished independent panel of jurors, the $25000 prize annually recognizes an American artist under 50 who has demonstrated exceptional creativity and whose work is “emblematic of this period in contemporary art.” The 2007 winner, Jessica Stockholder (Season 3), was announced last September in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition.
