SFMOMA and assistant curators Apsara DiQuinzio (painting and sculpture) and Tanya Zimbardo (media arts) have just announced the 2010 SECA Art Award winners. For those more far than near, this prestigious biennial award honors Bay Area artists who are working independently at a high level of artistic maturity but who have not yet received substantial recognition. It’s very exciting to be able to congratulate this year’s awardees, Mauricio Ancalmo, Colter Jacobsen, Ruth Laskey, and Kamau Patton. The exhibition featuring their work will be on view at the museum in late 2011.
