This year’s annual Wendy Sussman Memorial Prize in Painting features the work of Cherisse Alcantara and Hansen Deng, selected for their outstanding achievement in painting.
The Wendy Sussman Prize in Painting, in honor of figurative painter and inspirational professor Wendy Sussman who taught at Berkeley from 1989 until her untimely death in 2001, is made possible by a generous donor.
There are two main components to The Sussman Prize:
The Wendy Sussman Prize in Painting
The Prize is awarded to two undergraduate students each year. Students are selected in the spring. Each student receives an honorarium of $3,000 and an exhibition in the Worth Ryder Art Gallery the following spring.
The Wendy Sussman Memorial Painting Lecture
Each spring the Prize supports a visiting painter who, in a 1 or 2-day visit, gives a public lecture and visits undergraduate painting classes, undergraduate honors studios, and MFA studios.
