Rebecca Kamen receives Strauss Fellowship

Artist and GRACE alumna Rebecca Kamen is the recipient of the 2013 Strauss Fellowship, awarded by the Arts Council of Fairfax County. Kamen works mainly in sculptural installation, as was her 2009 show, Divining Nature: An Elemental Garden, at the Greater Reston Arts Center, which was inspired by the periodic table. Kamen will also be one of the key note speakers at the VAEA conference this year. We reached out to Kamen recently to congratulate her, and she commented on how GRACE played a role in her career development: “My sculpture installation at GRACE, Divining Nature: An Elemental Garden, inspired by the periodic table, has been an incredible catalyst since its exhibition in Reston.” For a short video on her exhibition at GRACE click here.

  1. This is a delightful presentation of a very sensitive and awe inspiring exhibit. I am only sorry I was not able to experience it in person as I was out of town when the exhibit was at GRACE. Thank you for the video.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Linda. I didn’t get to experience this in person either, but I love browsing the pictures from the show. Looks amazing!
