Congratulations to Sandra Lapage MFA ’21 on being named a 2022-23 Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant recipient!

Lapage lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil as a sculptor working with trash and discarded materials that are often malleable (and even wearable) to address a series of environmental and behavioral issues. These sculptures unfold into installations and photo-performances.

“I am delighted to be a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grantee this year; it is a huge honor to be supported by such a prestigious and generous organization,” Lapage shares. “The strength and inspiration this assistance represents cannot be understated. I feel invigorated and motivated for this upcoming year and for the challenges ahead.”

The highly-selective Pollock-Krasner Foundation provides one-year of financial assistance to individual visual artists of established ability. The Foundation’s grants are awarded to professional artists with recognizable artistic merit who work in any of the following media: painting, sculpture, and works on paper, including printmaking.

Lapage went on to say, “To anyone interested, I encourage you to get to know the foundation and its mission to support and help artists all around the world.”
