Bay Area’s Best

On December 13 the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) announced the winners of the 2012 SECA Art Award—a biennial award honoring Bay Area Artists through an exhibition, an accompanying publication, and an honorarium. SAIC alumnus Josh Faught (MFA 2006) is among four winners selected from a pool of more than 250 artists. In this year’s iteration of the award, the museum will commission new work from each awardee to be exhibited in various locations throughout the Bay Area. A press release from the SFMOMA states Faught’s work “mines the rich histories of craft in sculptures that pair traditional textiles and homespun techniques such as loom-weaving, knitting, and crocheting with everyday objects that reference domesticity, political slogans, or kitsch.”
