The Nasher Prize is the only international award devoted entirely to the art of sculpture. It’s given annually to a living sculptor whose work has had an “extraordinary impact” on the art form. Presented by the Nasher Sculpture Center, the $100,000 prize is chosen by a distinguished jury of influential curators, museum directors, artists and art historians. It also happens to be the richest arts prize in Texas. But it’s also clear from the selection of Nasher laureates, the prize is aiming to gain an audience and a respect for sculpture far beyond the state’s borders.
