During the 2010 artCRUSH dinner, Director and Chief Curator
Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson will present artist honoree Marilyn Minter with the Aspen Award for Art. The award is given each year to an artist who has either exhibited, or will exhibit, at the museum. Minter’s photorealistic
paintings capture the moment where clarity becomes abstraction, beauty commingles with the grotesque and the body is cast as a site of aggressive desire. For the past 20 years, Minter has explored what she calls the “pathology of glamour” — the painstaking everyday un- and redoing
of women’s appearance in the drive to achieve physical perfection. Closing in tightly on her subjects, she examines glamour, seeking to permeate our fantasies in order to show the viewer that the human condition itself
 makes the ideal impossible to obtain.

In honoring Marilyn Minter, Zuckerman Jacobson comments:
“I became a fan of Marilyn’s work during the ‘90s and have been following her career closely ever since. She is an important artist, who, up until now, has not been honored for her work, and we are fortunate to be able to do so
at artCRUSH this summer.  Some artCRUSH aficionados might also remember that she very generously contributed a wonderful limited edition set of pillows for artCRUSH 2006.”

2009’s Aspen Award for Art was presented to American artist
Fred Tomaselli, who was featured in a solo exhibition at the museum through October 11, 2009.

 Past Aspen Award for Art

honorees include: Ed Ruscha (2008), Jim Hodges (2007),
Tony Feher (2006), and Richard Tuttle (2005).
