Alumna Tammie Rubin Receives Award!

January 24, 2024

Alumna Tammie Rubin (BFA 1999 History of Art and Crafts) received a Berresford Prize from United States Artists. Please visit here.

The Berresford Prize is an unrestricted $50,000 award given annually to a cultural practitioner who has contributed significantly to the advancement, well-being, and care of artists in society.

Introduced in 2019, the award was conceived of by several USA Fellows in response to the lack of acknowledgment for those who have dedicated their careers to the betterment of artists. Named for our co-founder Susan V. Berresford, this prize reinforces our commitment to artists by acknowledging the remarkable administrators, curators, scholars, and producers who are building platforms and creating conditions for artists to thrive. Each year’s recipient is selected by an internal nomination and review process.

[ID: A gallery with white walls featuring a design of triangles, geometric shapes, an outline of the US, and an organic shape resembling an enormous puddle; all are painted in the same medium-blue color. Along the walls are shelves with cone-shaped sculptures and small orange-and-white flags. In the center of the space are two medium-blue benches covered with indecipherable objects.]
