CSULB Art Alumna Brenna Youngblood wins 2015 Gwendolyn Knight | Jacob Lawrence Prize

Posted on October 8, 2014 by School of Art

Seattle Art Museum (SAM) announces the selection of Brenna Youngblood as the winner of the 2015 Gwendolyn Knight | Jacob Lawrence Prize. Youngblood will be honored with a $10,000 award to further her artistic practice. “Created through a handmade process of addition, subtraction, layering and peeling, Brenna Youngblood’s art is subtle yet effective as she communicates personal experiences through common objects. The result is remarkable,” says Kimerly Rorschach, SAM’s Illsley Ball Nordstrom Director and CEO.  “Her artistic and cultural practice truly honors the legacy of the Lawrences.” Her work will also be featured in a solo exhibition in SAM’s Gwendolyn Knight | Jacob Lawrence Gallery in 2015 and will be curated by Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and SAM’s former Deputy Director for Education and Public Programs/Adjunct Curator in Modern and Contemporary Art. For more information, please click here.

Congratulations to Ms. Youngblood!
