Alumnus Lists Among “Next Most Collectable Artists”

On June 12 Art + Auction highlighted SAIC alumnus Jacob Hashimoto (BFA 1996) in “50 Under 50: The Next Most Collectable Artists.” A follow-up to the 2012 feature “The 50 Most Collectible Living Artists,” the list focuses on artists under the age of 50 who “have a proven record in the market and also show promise of the continuing innovation and devotion to craft that will warrant attention for decades to come.” Hashimoto’s “cleverly deceptive” works make him a “perennial crowd favorite at fairs” and a “natural choice” for major institutional and commercial commissions, says editor Deborah Wilk. Hashimoto visited SAIC in March to participate in the Visiting Artist Program’s Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series. His work is currently exhibited at Studio La Città in Verona, Italy, through August 31.
