Back-to-Back Rappaports For Bennington Faculty

For the second year in a row, a Bennington faculty member has been named winner of the prestigious Rappaport Prize. The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum announced Liz Deschenes as recipient of the $25,000 award, after selecting Ann Pibal last year. The prize is given annually to an established contemporary artist with strong ties to New England. 

Katy Kline, interim executive director of the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, said Deschenes' "deft and inventive interventions into photographic materials and processes are concerned with perception rather than description, and her beautiful and mysterious works align closely with deCordova’s emphasis on photography and sculpture.”
