2001-05-18 until 2001-09-02
Carnegie Museum of Art
Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The small sculptures of 17 artists between the ages of 18 and 30 will be on view in Carnegie Museum of Art's Forum Gallery from May 18 through September 2, 2001. The objects are part of a national competition, sponsored by the National Society of Arts and Letters, and are the first place winners from contests held earlier this year by the organization at its regional chapters. The winner of the national competition receives a $10,000 grand prize, and will be announced on Saturday, May 19 as part of the NSAL's annual convention which is being held in Pittsburgh this year.

Jurors for the exhibition are Thomas Sokolowski, director of The Andy Warhol Museum; Susan Rosenberg, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, Philadelphia Museum of Art; and nationally recognized sculptors Thaddeus Mosley and Michael Hall.
