Sculptor Doris Salcedo, a native of Colombia, has been honored with the Nasher Prize from the Nasher Sculpture Center.
Salcedo was the first person to be awarded the Nasher Prize. Along with the award, which was designed by Renzo Piano, she will also be awarded with a $100,000 cash prize, according to NBC News. She will be honored at a ceremony on April 2, 2016.
Salcedo’s work consists mostly of memorial pieces making sculptures out of chairs, shoes, bricks, and other items. Some of her work is currently on display in the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
The Nasher Prize will start to be presented yearly to honor active sculpture artists.
