Andrew Lenaghan (B.F.A. ’87), of Brooklyn, has received a Joan Mitchell Foundation 2011 Painters & Sculptors Grant for $25,000.
According to their press release, “The Foundation selected nominators nationwide dedicated to supporting artists who are under-recognized for their artistic achievements and whose career would benefit from the grant. … Nominators and jurors include prominent visual artists, curators, and arts educators.”
The Joan Mitchell Foundation was established in April 1993 as a not-for-profit corporation following the death of Joan Mitchell in October 1992. They assist the needs of contemporary artists and seek to demonstrate that painting and sculpture are significant cultural necessities.
