The Nasher Sculpture Center has announced the new $100,000 Nasher Prize, an international prize that will be awarded annually to living artists worldwide for "work that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture." The inaugural winner will be announced in Fall of 2015.

"The Nasher Sculpture Center is one of a few institutions worldwide dedicated exclusively to the exhibition and study of modern and contemporary sculpture," says the center. "As such, the prize is an apt extension of the museum’s mission and its commitment to advancing developments in the field. By recognizing those artists who have influenced our understanding of sculpture and its possibilities, the Nasher Sculpture Center will further its role as a leading institution in enhancing and promoting this vital art form."

An international jury of renowned museum directors, curators, artists and art historians who have an expertise in the field, and varying perspectives on the subject, will select the Nasher Prize laureate. The Nasher is developing a series of public programs and educational opportunities tied to the Nasher Prize.

The Jury will convene for deliberations on July 3, 2015 at Tate Britain in London.
