FRANCIS J. GREENBURGER AWARDS/2003

Monday, January 27 from 6 to 8 pm

The public is invited to attend the presentation of the Francis J.
Greenburger Awards, presented by Art Omi International Arts
Center. The awards ceremony and reception will be held on Monday, January 27 from
6 to 8 pm at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, 583 Broadway, in
New York City. The awards are funded and supported by the Francis J. Greenburger
Foundation.

A reserved dinner will follow the event. (For dinner reservations, call
(212) 206-6060)

Francis J. Greenburger, a New York real estate developer, is the
founder and chairman of Art Omi International Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary
residency program for artists, writers, and musicians from around the
world, and The Fields Sculpture Park in Columbia County, New York.

In his introduction to the Awards catalogue, Greenburger writes:

“My goal in awarding the Greenburger Prize…has been to
identify and celebrate artists whom knowledgeable people from the art world know to
be of extraordinary merit, but who for one reason or another have not been
fully recognized by the world at large.”

Five jurors, chosen for their outstanding reputations (an artist, a
gallerist, a collector, a museum director or curator, and a critic or
art historian) were asked to select artists from their own experience who
they feel fit the definition of the award.

This year, the awards, consisting of a cash prize of $7500 for each awardee, will be presented to:

Robert Bechtle, selected by gallerist Barbara Gladstone

Lee Bontecou, selected by Ann Philbin, director of
UCLA’s Hammer Museum

Kazuko Miyamoto, selected by artist Leon Golub

Dorothea Rockburne, selected by critic Michael Brenson

Joe Zucker, selected by collector Martin Z. Margulies

An illustrated catalog is available upon request.
