Please join me in congratulating BFA Photo 2004 Photography Alumna Rahshia Sawyer in winning the Fondation François Schneider's Contemporary Talents 2012 in Photography! Rahshia's work, "We are not Made of Wood" was selected out of 3,176 participants who submitted works related to the theme of water. The acquisition and exhibition prize of $20,000 promotes the work of yet unrecognized artists.
See the Corcoran Library's new research guide Corcoran Visiting Artists 2012-13 for books, articles, videos, and websites about this year's slate of visiting artists. Read up on the artists so that you can better understand their work, and ask thoughtful, informed questions at their lectures!
