Kalimah Muhammad Recognized as Outstanding Student

October 20, 2011

Alumna Kalimah Muhhammad ’11, who was awarded Honorable Mention at the International Sculpture Center’s Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards back in June, appears in Sculpture Magazine’s current October issue!

The ISC established the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award program in 1994 to recognize deserving sculpture students and to encourage their continued commitment to the field of sculpture.

Kalimah’s Faculty Sponsor was Asst. Sculpture Prof. Marilu Swett.

Kalimah’s senior year work was an exploration of minimally hewn objects interacting with and within a chosen space. It involved found and cast pieces in basic sculptural material, drawings made with or rubbed over simple objects and building materials, and spaces redefined by using string or wooden pallets.

Kalimah competed against 485 sculpture students at 190 colleges here and abroad. We are proud of her achievement!
