The 2020 Isaac Anolic Jewish Book Arts Award went to Brooklyn-based artist, Robbin Ami Silverberg. Ms. Silverberg will create a limited-edition artist book about ‘what we can know from words and what is the meaning of the written word, both sacred and profane”. She will make the paper specific to the work, do the artwork and text, binding and boxing the final unique piece.
The 2020 Naomi Anolic Early Career Jewish Visual Arts Award went to Michael Siporin Levine, a fourth-generation Jewish artist who works in multiple mediums: printmaking, drawings, animations and installations. The award will be used to create a current body of work that will be included in a two-person exhibition in Jan. 2021 at SOIL Gallery in Seattle, WA.
