The 2019 awardees of the Anonymous Was a Woman Award include alums Diane Simpson (BFA 1971, MFA 1978) and Amie Siegel (MFA 1999). Established by Susan Unterberg, the grant program supports women artists in their midcareers. On Artforum, Unterberg states her ambitions for the program as, “More than twenty years later, we continue to see data that reveals the delta between how both museums and the market regard male and female artists—which only galvanizes our mission and our commitment to celebrating the voices of women.”
