Those of you who closely follow the art circuit might have heard that contemporary artist Elizabeth Turk was recently awarded a MacArthur “genius” award: $500,000 over the course of five years.  This award is given each year by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to approximate 20 U.S. citizens “ working in any field who show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work.” The fellowship is not rewarded based on past accomplishment, but rather as “an investment in a person’s originality, insight, and potential.”

The Weatherspoon Art Museum owns an early work by Turk which was most recently on view in Odd Bodies: Selections from the Permanent Collection, January 24-April 18, 2010.
